Thats not the problem it this case. The drawback in production requests has caused many of the board houses in this area to either close, or to contract dramatically. So now when you try to get a PCB made you have to go through one of the discount houses that have less experienced labor. Its all a function of market forces, not stupid CEOs as you say.
