What Type of Responses Do You Receive?

It is good to hear the feedback from Buy American Made supporters as they are very informative. There are two responses most often heard by our supporters:
"I'm trying to buy American made, BUT imported products now overwhelm just about every store where I shop”. Store personnel respond, “I only work here and have nothing to do with the items sold at the store.”
Store clerks often say that people are asking for American made, and they are told to ask customers, “does it really matter where a product is made as long as you can buy it when you need it?”

These are just a few responses our supporters encounter when shopping. However, it shows store personnel that people are more involved trying to buy American made products.  Americans clearly see the degree of damage caused by outsourcing so much of what was made in America for years. We also see how important it is for us to support American made and help businesses in the U.S.A. expand the American made label. In the last 35 years America lost the production of over 70,000 items formerly made in America for many years, but relocated to foreign countries, which caused the loss of millions of jobs for our fellow Americans, who represent our family, friends and neighbors.

To help us expand our campaign, make up a shopping list and check off what you found made in the U.S.A. and what you find only available as an imported product. Don’t hesitate to speak up where you shop and invite your family and friends to support American made products.

Thanks for your participation. American workers and future generations of American workers are depending on us. Your suggestions are welcome. Email them to:
