Innovation, Technology, Skilled Workers & Customers!

As more of our supporters go out of their way to support American workers representing small and large businesses, non-union and union, and the self-employed, we have seen many positive changes in the way business is being conducted in America. In order to focus on our future, we have to not only get more people talking about the Buy American Made Campaign, but being more focused on ways to restore jobs in America. Here are a few points to consider:

1.
Innovation: For over two centuries tens-of-thousands of products were invented and manufactured in America, but they are now largely made outside of America. With the new incentives being provided to America’s private sector businesses, we have the opportunity to restore tens-of-millions of jobs, so it’s important we Support the American Made Label first.
2.
Technology: There is no reason why Americans can’t produce competitive products of every type and help restore America’s industries and jobs.
3.
Skilled Workers: Businesses should always inform the American people about the skills needed in the industries of TODAY and TOMORROW. That information should be the main focus of America’s school systems so our youth are prepared for the workforce.
4.
WE MUST ALL SPEAK UP where we shop and encourage businesses to seek out more American made products from their suppliers. There are more American made products available but they are not promoted by merchandisers because foreign products yield more profits for importers. For years American made products did not receive the shelf space and distribution they needed to grow and with your help we are working to restore no less than 50% of what is sold in America being made in America.
5.
Every Business Needs Customers so your words at the cash register and your spending habits let business owners know what their customers are thinking and how they are spending their dollars. I have never heard of a business needing less business, so spend your dollars in support of American made FIRST.
6.
Internet Shoppers should ask where the products are made so Internet businesses know you’re concerned about American made. You can visit the Go4USA mobile App on your android or iOS device which will direct you to a large number of products that are Made in the U.S.A. Thanks for your participation and for spreading the word to family and friends.
