Alas, not a single air fryer has been located.

Anybody up for a Crowd Funding of US Made Coffee Machines, Air Fryers, etc? I'd pay double for made in the USA.

One of the reasons we're in the shitty situation is that there are no multitude of US Manufacturers fighting off Wokeness for their own self-interest, since almost everything is pretty much made in CHYna or Mexico.

Maybe it would be much more than double though.

The US minimum wage is $7.25/hour.

The lowest in China is $172/month, or about 172 / (21 * 8) = $1.02/hour

And China has no unions and very weak pollution laws. How can you compete with that?

It will only be $15/hr when Biden's inflationary spending policies will make that $15/hr have less buying power than $7.50 does today. By that time, the prevailing wage will be that high anyway, and the Dems can then apply the $15/hr wage and claim credit. Until that time, any regional $15/hr minimum wage will have cutouts for favored donors like Walmart and Amazon, but will apply to Walmart and Amazon small store competitors.

I head from someone that in some poor Indian state, You can pay $200 to kill a human.
So we can never complete with low wages of otehr countries.

We need a closed system where government needs to put trade barriers.
For your product, You need something very innovative and heavily patented so that you can sue to protect from Chinese copycats.

See How the pharma guards it, Small businesses need same protection if they join hand and buy politicians.

That's an interesting idea.

Since our Congressmen are mostly whores to lobbyists, the problem is really that small businesses need their own lobby.
