Description
 
Report on the U.S. textile and apparel industries in 1987. Despite the optimism made possible by technical progress, these firms are in danger. Little of the technology that allowed for increased productivity was developed by U.S.-based enterprises. The same advanced technology is available to firms throughout the world, including those in nations that pay workers a small fraction of the U.S. minimum wage. Sophisticated networks of U.S. and foreign companies use these factors to undercut U.S. supplier prices; apparel imports grew from 25% to 50% of the U.S. market in the 1980s. Increases in U.S. labor productivity and U.S. imports have led to significant job losses within the domestic textile and apparel industries. Charts and tables.
