Foreign Levi’s

To the editor:

I have purchased Levi’s jeans since I was about 12 years old. I remember buying them for $5 a pair when Hal Keltz had the Lawrence Surplus store in downtown Lawrence. I was looking at the labels of some that I have now and was very surprised to find that they were made in Egypt, Bangladesh, China, Lesotho (a country within the Republic of South Africa) and even Cambodia! And these were purchased here in Lawrence. No wonder that the unemployment rate is as high as it is.
