Today at work I had need to change the printer cartridge in the
laserjet. It was a Hewlett Packard printer. When I opened the front of
the printer, I happened to notice that it said "Assembled in the USA"
and had an Idaho location. So while I had the thing apart, I began
looking at parts...everything, was Made in China, including the new
cartridge I was putting on.
I'm pretty sure that printer falls under the definition of manufactured
in the US, but it was anything but that. Assembling foreign parts is
not the same. But, I suppose, it is a minimum wage job for someone.
