Dry cleaners get hung up on the cost of hangers

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.
