The war on wedding websites, knock-offs and thievery rages on attracting the attention of busy business owners keeping one eye on the story and the other on cash registers. A growing number of eWedNewz readers following the story say they’re finding us on all Social Media sources sharing the newZ, re-tweeting and generally discussing the situation.
Growing fears say we owe our Chinese partners too much money to find a reasonable solution and fight off the their growing impact on American business.
Everyone is aware of the problem, many discuss the troubles but few are willing to offer their opinion for possible solutions to the issues. Even then, most of the discussions are private saying the troubles are insurmountable; mired by a government frozen and powerless against a foe (faux partner) we owe too much money.
Christina DiBlase, owner of A. Bridal Co. & formal in New Jersey gives her opinion of what can be done to help the situation.
“My basic thoughts are to solving the problem is:
1. Get pictures, prices and style #s off the designer website so China can not copy designs;
2. Since real estate is ample and interest rates are low in the States right now, vendors should consider buying large warehouses that are currently empty or buying property and building warehouses to help put American workers back to work.
Obviously the American workers will want a higher wage but isn’t that what China is starting to require now? So even if it may cost the vendor a bit more to offer a good salary they can now proudly offer a quality American made product. The product may cost more but that will mean that the bride will have to be more diligent with her finances or seek out another job if she wants the extras.
Not only that but it will teach our people the basic skills of working with your hands that many have never been taught. We are all so techy, but many of us can’t hem a pair of pants,” she says.
Currently an overwhelming majority of response to an ongoing eWedNewz poll says it matters where products are made or would buy American products, if they were made here in the United States.
eWedNewz welcomes your thoughts and invites you to take the poll.
