Should home depot have a machine shop and metal pouring area?

Did you mugs in Fairfax know that CALIFORNIA has free 'public access' machine shops?

Fairfax used to indirectly - through heavy made in USA industrial machinery - in FCPS. But FCPS sold the machinery to Mexico while "remodeling schools", they are how being used at this moment to overthrow USA manufacturers.

No one knows how much of the heavy industrial equipment in those "California public access" shops have walked out the door to china and mexico.

------------------

meanwhile - home depot actually has REDUCED leasing: less and less equipment available and banned availability: (in Carolina you can lease a backhoe, but in fairfax there are none to lease and it's "illegal": your forced to hire a hispanic contractor using an asian backhoe - which looks VERY SIMILAR to fx co gov road and sewer plan: %90 hispanic and always using imported asian machinery)

Sounds like a good way for Home Depot to get their asses sued.

What's wrong with $2.10 an hour? That's what I made at my first job! Oh, wait, what was 45 years ago...

NOT challenging your thesis, which is obviously correct, but: do you have any real data for that $2.10? I've been hearing that Chinese and Indian costs have risen significantly--that a decade ago you'd pay 1/3 the cost for 1/2 the productivity, and that now it's more like 1/2 the cost for about equal productivity. It would be interesting to see what Mexican labor rates are doing.

And yes, I know how to Google, but I'm too damned tired to do it now...

Of course, Fairfax made it a convenient opportunity and it’s a sin not to use it, but this is not the best decision, because paying Chinese and Indian suppliers is not the most pleasant, it’s better to contact your compatriots. Once I was looking for a good service, because many either take expensive or use low-quality tools and vehicles. And my friend offered me the grabe company site and since then I have been using only the best features. Two years have passed, and I'm still satisfied

Equipment like backhoes and other industrial equipment are readily available for rental throughout the area, perhaps just not at home depot.
