The T-shirt factory
Now, I know NOTHING about t-shirt manufacture, but I do know that we have a lot of available space. I also know that we have a lot of labor. Sure, taxes are high, but they are in LA, too.
I DO know that the shirts made by American Apparel feel better than any I have ever worn, and that people will pay extra for a shirt that is comfy, cool, and local.
I also know that every entrepreneur in Buffalo has started a screen printing t-shirt shop. So why not create t's locally to sell to them?
Another con--there isn't much local cotton (or any), but right now, the average t-shirt is made with American cotton shipped to the far East. Buffalo would be a much shorter trip.
I would encourage everybody to join me in brainstorming ways to create jobs in this city. We need them.
