Now that you've tried that and you may be forced to branch out, I agree with those who have suggested or implied that you should explore Canada and Mexico first. As our neighbors and NAFTA partners, these countries are the next best thing to the USA in

I would also write to your elected officials to try to resolve the root of the problem: Minimum wage laws that bloat wages above the natural market value and destroy local jobs. Without ridiculous minimum wage laws, you could afford to make your products locally.
