Two Months Promoting the Same Theme!

For over two centuries it was well known that the key to success for long term employment in America was skills and experience. Our immigrant ancestors came to America to be part of the American dream where opportunities were plentiful and job skills were respected. It was with these same ideals that supporters of the Buy American Made Campaign and American Workers Radio proclaimed November as American Made Month. Our THANKS to all who helped make this effort a success. It was another opportunity to get more people talking about America’s future as we promoted efforts like going out to VOTE, National Small Business Weekend, honoring America’s veterans, discussing the American made campaign with family and friends during the Thanksgiving holiday and urging supporters to seek out products with labels made in the U.S.A.

We will continue to promote American workers during December as we honor a proclamation issued by President Ronald Reagan in December 1985 when he proclaimed December as Made in America Month. In 1985, President Reagan saw major problems on the horizon for American workers as he stated clearly thought his proclamation which American Workers Radio will promote throughout the Month of December. (President Reagan’s 1985 Proclamation supporting American Workers is linked here.)

As I stated in the past, there will always be room for competitive imported products in America's stores, but we also have to promote the new products that are being invented and produced in America and get back to making more of the items the American people use on a day-to day basis. Together we can accomplish this goal, but it’s going to take all of us seeking out products made in America so we can see more items like clothing, electronics, toys, furniture and hundreds more with made in the U.S.A. labels once again.
