Excuses Won't Change Today's Reality, But Actions Will!

Since December 2007, America lost almost 8 millions jobs in what is being called the “great recession”. That amount does not included millions of people who were already unemployed before the recession began. Four years later, unemployment remains high mainly because tens-of-thousands of well established American businesses packed up their operations and left the U.S.A. in search of low production costs and more profits.

To stay informed with the latest trends in stores, I asked several people living in different areas of the east coast to shop around and let me know what they see happening.

First: Shoppers reported that the majority of the products in stores are foreign made, especially clothing and electronics. American made items are more available than before, but not in competitive numbers. They also report that many well-known American brand name items are listed as being distributed by an American company, however, the label clearly lists the items as foreign made.

Second: Shoppers found that customers and store personnel are discussing the made in America issue and people are aware of newspapers, television, radio and Internet reports urging them to support the Buy American Made Campaign so we can restore America’s industries and the American way of life.

Excuses Won't Change The Reality We Find America In Today, BUT YOUR ACTIONS WILL! Help the cause by spending your dollars wisely and reward the businesses that remained in America and are offering you items with "Made in the U.S.A." labels.

In the very near future we will have more opportunities to address ways to support American workers and America's businesses on Visit the site and place your name on our email list.
