There is still plenty of stuff made in the USA, but a whole bunch of stuff is now made elsewhere where labor is cheap.  I once set up a couple of dawg squeaky toy factories in Mexico and China run by kats.  It never worked out because all the kats had an attitude and were constantly taking breaks.  Some were even caught taking drugs (Nip) or dealing the stuff, and I had to shut it down.  These days I source all my squeaky toys from middle-America (Michigan mostly) where the work ethic remains strong and the drug of choice remains good old fashioned American-made brewskies - but only after work.  I have stopped hiring kats.
