Kanye West is set to bring hundreds of manufacturing jobs to the United States through moving production facilities of his Adidas Yeezys brand to the country from nations such as China, Cambodia and Vietnam.
West plans on opening a facility in Cody, Wyoming, near where the rapper acquired the Bighorn Mountain Ranch with the intention of making it his primary residence.
Kanye grew a strong attachment with the Mountain West state after recording his 2018 album ‘Ye’ in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Steve Smith, Yeezys’s production designer, spoke of West’s desire to bring back manufacturing jobs from abroad during a fashion industry event in November.
“We’re going to bring jobs back here. We’re going to make Yeezys in America. This is revolution.”
In an ironic twist, a Dutch NGO is scolding West over his plan to move jobs to America from the Asian countries.
The Clean Clothes Campaign claims that West is negatively impacting the sweatshop workers that currently manufacture Adidas Yeezy products in dismal workplace conditions. The charity maintains they’d be better off with their existing employment structure, under which many earn no more than $4 a day.
Many American companies outsource their manufacturing and business operations under the premise of profiting from the sweatshop conditions prevalent in the East Asian labor markets.
It doesn’t occur to “charitable” organizations such as the Clean Clothes campaign that the most effective way to shut down such employment models would be to move manufacturing to nations with far more decent and fair labor conditions, such as the United States.
Adidas Yeezys is already subletting a factory in Cody. The brand is seeking at least a dozen new workers for the operation from the local community.

Georgia’s Unelected RINO Senator Cashed Out on Stocks After Coronavirus Briefing
Sen. Kelly Loeffler has demonstrated her cronyism.
Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), who was appointed to her post undemocratically against the wishes of President Donald Trump, has been revealed for selling stock shortly after a private briefing on the coronavirus.
She and her husband sold off a stunning seven figures worth of stock options after the Senate Health Committee held a private meeting with all Senators to brief them about the growing coronavirus epidemic.
“Appreciate today’s briefing from the President’s top health officials on the novel coronavirus outbreak. These men and women are working around the clock to keep our country safe and healthy,” Loeffler wrote in a tweet about the briefing at the time.
Loeffler dumped stocks worth between $50,001 and $100,000 in Resideo Technologies following the hearing. The stock for Resideo has dropped by half since that point, as the Dow Jones has tanked by losing roughly 10,000 points.
She also made a buy of between $100,000 and $250,000 in Citrix, a tech firm specializing in teleworking that has bucked the market during its downturn due to the increased demand for remote networking because of coronavirus.
In subsequent tweets, Loeffler has repeatedly downplayed the threat of coronavirus.
“Democrats have dangerously and intentionally misled the American people on #Coronavirus readiness,” she wrote in a tweet on Feb. 28. “Here’s the truth: @realDonaldTrump & his administration are doing a great job working to keep Americans healthy & safe.”
“Concerned about #coronavirus?” she wrote in a tweet on March 10. “Remember this: The consumer is strong, the economy is strong, & jobs are growing, which puts us in the best economic position to tackle #COVID19 & keep Americans safe.”
Since she wrote those tweets, most of the country has been locked down, Wall Street has cratered, and death tolls have continued to spike.
Loeffler is not the only Senator who seemingly took information about coronavirus to benefit their own finances. Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), who is chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, had his hand caught in the cookie jar as well. He jettisoned between $500,000 and $1.5 million of stock in February after the meeting.
Burr knew about how potentially deadly the coronavirus could become, but only told his inner circle of well-connected constituents and kept the public in the dark.
“There’s one thing that I can tell you about this: It is much more aggressive in its transmission than anything that we have seen in recent history,” he told the insiders in the uncovered audio. “It is probably more akin to the 1918 pandemic.”
Loeffler was appointed to the U.S. Senate seat last year by Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp against the counsel of President Trump. Trump’s preferred pick for the seat, Rep. Doug Collins, is challenging Loeffler for her Senate position right now. The U.S. Senate election in Georgia will take place in November with multiple Republicans on the ballot.
