Short version: some California chain selling men’s clothing is calling itself “Unionmade” when it’s not particularly featuring stuff made by unions, and the AFL-CIO is getting shirty about it. But here’s the point/counterpoint kicker:
“We sell really beautiful well-made products. Products I’ve always liked,” [Unionmade founder Todd] Barket told me. “Our clothing is honest and straightforward. Everything has a reason for being there. Good design. High quality. Not too tricky. Any guy can walk in and understand what we’re presenting. Everything is really understandable.”
…only about three to five percent of the items sold at Unionmade are union-made.
Translation: union-made products are pretty much crap quality these days. I think that the AFL-CIO should probably worry about THAT more.
