The news is upsetting that our own team’s Uniforms are not made at home for the most displayed international sporting event is upsetting, however it is not at all surprising. Outsourcing has become the thing to do for many companies, especially when it comes to products like clothing. But have things gotten so bad that the clothing that our athletes wear can’t even be made at home? If this is the case, then I might suggest we should take a look at what’s contributing to this as we are now both not only supporting our own domestic businesses, we're taking away the manufacturing jobs that this could create. Its time to review what we're doing in the US, and what we can do to make it better.
EPA Regulations continue to be a nuisance. The protection for which they are designed is completely overshadowed by the fact that they are time consuming, not cost effective and they never seen to be able to stay stable. All of which are things that are too great to bear for a number of businesses as regulatory policies never seem to have any kind of knowledge of business practices (http://bit.ly/zgsTLu). We need to develop a symbiotic relationship between Regulatory policy and day-to-day business transactions.

The war on coal continues to grow. While it is a thoughtful regulation in terms of making us more progressive with our environmental policies, it is daunting for many plants who rely on this a cheaper energy source. The cost of compliance alone is enough to make already operating business shut down which is costing us jobs at a time where we need labor more than ever (http://bit.ly/zIfsUf). While the intentions are good, the EPA's timing and perhaps thought process lack any kind of smooth transition.

This ongoing war on coal is going to prove daunting for a number of facilities. Coal has long since been the backbone of energy in the US. So even though it may be nice to be progressive on these environmental concerns it will prove to be a heavy burden for facilities who are not able to comply and have to either slash jobs or shut down all together(http://bit.ly/zIfsUf). This transition to an alternative energy future will be a rough road for many if we don't figure out how to replace the jobs that we are choosing to remove.

Our Regulatory Policies in the United States have gotten out of hand. They are more a series of reactive rules than proactive actions which would benefit both businesses AND people. Too often the cost of EPAs regulations are through the roof and moreover, since they change every 5 minutes, there's no real way to keep on top of them (http://bit.ly/zIfsUf) . We need to build a more symbiotic relationship between policy and practice so that we can hindering the others progress. Otherwise, there is no recovery.
