As Asian wages go up, and American wages come down (at least in real terms), we'll see manufacturing jobs like this return.

Even though there may be a 15 day pipeline of those bad capacitors, it is far better to find out soon after final assembly and only have maybe 1 days worth of finished product, than to find out knowing there is another 15 days of bad product behind it.
