    We could just ask India to do it, they'd be glad to help.

    I know that some bike companies have had gloves made there, and knew some people who went to check out the factories. This was several years ago so I'm not sure if that's still the case, but still, people do end up going to areas that are "not good" whether it's for vacation or business.

    Well, as long as they are providing us with cheap, material things, I say "carry on!".

    a company i used to work for had a manufacturing site there. thankfully i never went, but we did have conference calls. they were nice guys, but apparently the region had infrastructure issues - random black/brown outs.

    Oh please, that was dirt-common even in relatively industrialized parts of China.

    "Why can't we see the samples today?"
    "Factory has no power..."
    "So....... why weren't the samples made YESTERDAY before we got here?"
