Being from Wisconsin, maybe I should have went with team Red...  Just wish they had more woodworking tools available when I was building out the workshop.

That is great to see but it is all office jobs no manufacturing lines 

TTi is Chinese, at the end of the day the profit goes to china. These jobs are sales and marketing and at least some of that money stays in the US. There is no way they can manufacture in the US and market as wildly and carelessly as they have been to build the brand.

All it would take is one company to get off the Chinese labor merry-go-round and bring manufacturing back to the US, the others would follow suit. The problem is the costs would also skyrocket.

As a Canadian, I would rather buy American made over Chinese made, any day of the week!
