Response to tpsbmam (Original post)

13. Bosch is a good brand.

But even if the product had been made in Germany, you can be sure that it was made by well-paid, union employees with good benefits.

I try to buy stuff made in the US, but sometimes I'm torn: is it better to buy something made by poorly-paid, non-union workers in a so-called right-to-work U.S. state, or buy the same product made by well-paid union workers in another country? In our house, we always try to buy union if it's possible.
