Dry cleaners get hung up on the cost of hangers

Posted: Updated:

In the dry cleaning business, metal hangers already are a big expense.

That cost is rising since the United States is imposing new trade penalties on Vietnam.  Our country imports more wire hangers from Vietnam than from any other country.

Apparently the Vietnamese government has been unfairly subsiding wire hanger exports.  Yep, the dry cleaners will be passing those new costs on to customers.
