Like most products we buy, American flags used to say “made in China.” Perhaps some patriots criticized that, because today if you walk into a store like Home Depot, there are conspicuously prominent signs saying “Made in America” by the flags.
But where in America are these flags made? Today the California Department of Corrections posted a “Happy Fourth of July” photo of a woman in prison sewing an American flag. Manufacturing products in the U.S. instead of China is a convenient switch since either way the laborer is paid next to nothing. For example, the minimum wage for prisoners in PA is around 12 cents an hour. The 13th Amendment bans slavery except in prison labor.
God bless the U.S.A.!
