it already has the made in america price tag, really I peeped it, apple is gonna raise prices by 10-100$ , their stocks are falling they neeed a new it factor to push in peoples faces and in the face of the competition, they Know more people will blindly support their product way more just for the fact that it says Made in America.. its a business move that will payoff at a later date. maybe even make a global shift of jobs industry wide.

Apple had their peak now they're declining. Time for another company to take top spot.

I wish they wouldn't move them to America. Generally speaking, every American made product I buy of no greater quality than Asian. The person standing on the assembly line, is of average human IQ. If they are American, or Asian, it doesn't really matter. Culturally speaking, low skill job workers in america are lazy and unmotivated. I worked many low skill jobs and in all of them, you be seen doing as much work as possible, and not be seen doing as little as possible. People don't think, nor care about the end customer. In Asia, these jobs are literally these peoples life line, and without it, they could go homeless/starve. Plus, there is little to no laws governing how they treat their workers, so they are pushed to higher standards than would even be legal here.

Fair or not, those are the facts. Wouldn't you rather keep 100 factory workers alive in China, rather than pay $14 dollars an hour to a unionized middle aged American male....

Maybe that's just what the average Joe in North America needs. Have you been paying attention to the US economy lately... it's not quite dire but it's getting there.
