I would rather pay more for an american worker to make my shoes, than to support slavery in other countries. For some reason, it only makes since.

Not necessarily. Just wait a little bit, the prices from China are rising rapidly already.
And big business already has its eyes on India and thereafter Africa.
Our jobs are gone for good dear people. From now on a large percentage of our society will be struggling forever.

The only way we once again become a manufacturing country is if we
become selfsufficient by living in small communities and make everything we need ourselves and are totally independent from big business.
Look at the Amish.

The last time I went looking for American made shoes, it was almost impossible to get them and the few that were available were work shoes/boots. At that time they were double the price of foreign ones.

They costed me $59.95 and were made in China. How much would it have costed me to pay an American worker to make them? I would pay up to $79.99 if they were made in America.
