# American Employees: 3
  Oregon Bedrolls are manufactured by inmates of the EOCI, Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution in Pendleton Oregon. This excellent work skills program does more than teach inmates how to run industrial equipment, it teaches them skills to be good employees, being on time, interpersonal workplace skills, communication skills, professionalism as well as reinforcing pride in accomplishment. We searched the entire west coast for appropriate manufacturing, there is none in Oregon, several in downtown LA, not the good part of the town. Quality of the workmanship was paramount, and we chose the prison in Pendleton. The facility is modern, professional, well run, well lit, organized, spacious and expansive with well over 100 workstations. The inmates and their boss Rick that finished 3 final prototypes and got the manufacturing going on the bedroll were great to work with, they went above and beyond. The program at EOCI in Pendleton has been a huge asset to Oregon Bedroll. Inmates are compensated, but the bulk of their pay is withheld and applied towards restitution of victims, taxes, family support or goes to pay back the state for incarceration costs. The inmates I have met who work on the Oregon Bedroll have been capable, businesslike, motivated, and generally excited to show off how high quality of work they can do. Oregon Bedroll is proud to be associated with this fine program.

Thoughts on America:
I believe American manufacturing business should concentrate on innovating and producing the highest quality products the world has to offer. Do not compete on price, compete on value.
