Over buying and the idea that you need the latest version aren’t helping anyone or anything! I know a limited number of items are going to liquidators and charity shops. That said on an environment cost the amounts thrown away is staggering! There’s no reason that returns can’t be curtailed with good descriptions. I do know that some online retailers are starting to list the height of their models which will help but some other dimensions would help to. Teaching the consumer about cuts, styles, seat depth, and other measurements would cut it down further. And using an actual measurement would be nice. When you have something that is supposed to be 36 inches it would be nice if it was! Having a 2 inch variance is a huge reason that woman’s clothes are returned also the ease (the extra room left for movement) of the garment. It’s a ridiculous mess where the same size, similar styles but different companies don’t fit remotely close!! Everyone has gone along with this for too many years

How B.C. flooding, COVID-19 led to a McDonald's potato shortage in Japan
$1:
Nearly 3,000 McDonald’s locations across Japan are being forced to ration French fries over the holiday season after a shipping bottleneck in Vancouver created a potato shortage an ocean away.

On Dec. 21, president and CEO of McDonald’s Japan Co. Tamotsu Hiiro said in in a translated statement its locations usually ship potatoes through Vancouver on a large scale.

But recent flooding and the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 have forced the iconic fast-food chain to take drastic steps. From Dec. 24 to Dec. 30, McDonald’s Japan will suspend the sale of medium- and large-sized French fry orders — instead, rationing out the fries in small-sized portions.

In an email to Glacier Media from McDonald’s Japan, the company said the move is a “proactive measure” and that there have so far been no “breaks in supply.”

The potato shortage comes only days before many Japanese fast-food diners descend on chains like McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried Chicken in droves — a holiday tradition in Japan.

The small fry news was met with big reactions from customers in Japan.

“A truly disastrous end to 2021,” wrote one British transplant on Twitter.

“The end of the world (as we know it) is here,” wrote another.

There’s really no choice but to move things at least to Mexico.


Or, go back to making things here in Canada and the USA like we used to. Mexico isn't much better than China at this point in terms of manufacturing. Slave labour still makes everything there like it does in China.

North America has to go back to being self-sufficient.

Everyone who doesn't understand Economics thinks this way.

If "they" can make things we need cheaper and faster than we can, then we should buy their stuff and make things we can make better than they can. Why should we make t-shirts, when we have a limited work force and we need cars? Or satellites? (boycotting China's use of Hiugr labour, of course) Building the things we can, and they build the things they can, and we both trade for the things we need is called 'competitive advantage'. Everybody is better for it, because we all produce goods for the best price, and we all get what we need to better the economy.

Mexico is a major supplier to North Americas car industry. Don't you work in the car repair industry? How many cars would you repair if Mexico didn't make the parts; seats, or wiring looms, or fuel injectors?

Pretty much an open secret and they use the 'market forces' as a ways and means to justify this level of price gouging. During a hurricane this would result in jail time, there is no difference here.

A lot of the vehicles we repair are made in the USA. Most of the Hondas we repair are made a half hour away in Alliston, Ontario. KIA and Hyundai products made and shipped from South Korea have horrendous electrical gremlins and the cost of their specialized parts are beyond ridiculous at this point (Kias and Hyundais built in NA use NA parts, which are cheaper).

The German luxury brands (manufactured and assembled all over the world now) are having issues with electrical and sensors, not to mention brakes. This is less manufacturing, and more quality control than anything else (at least in automotive).

I would say that based on what I see day in and day out, a Canadian made vehicle has a lot less issues than most others at this point. I used to be a huge Ford guy until my last car had a slew of recalls. It was made in Dearborn, Michigan, BTW. Ford should still build great cars, but quality control has slipped and these things are slapped together.

My own car was assembled in Mexico, but she's solid for the most part, and I baby her.

Customer looked at the rotten bananas and said he'd be ashamed to put produce in that condition out for sale.
I told him if he has a sense of shame, he'd never make management.

I wanted to buy a new car last year but the one I wanted wasn’t available. This year the lots look even emptier.
