United For Change!

There have been many changes in recent years in just about every community in America. One of the most important things happening is that Americans are more "United For Change.” What does that mean?

First, it means that Americans see new jobs and job skills are imperative for Americans' well-being. It means that without more jobs and job skills, employment opportunities will remain flat as businesses move where workers are available and job skills are growing. It means that Americans see our educational institutions must expand Industrial Arts training, also called "Trades Programs," so that students can have more career opportunities. It means that in addition to service-oriented jobs a growing number of jobs in manufacturing, industrial management, shipping and receiving as well as research and development must expand in the U.S.A. The most important issue is having everyone working together so competitive and cost-effective products can always be made in the U.S.A.

In the last few years, supporters of American Workers Need You have been contacting political leaders to question why is so little being done to work with private sector businesses to expand jobs in America rather than have businesses relocate around the globe? In the last few years with your assistance we have seen more people looking at ways to restore Industrial Arts Programs so that students are prepared for the jobs needed by 21st century businesses.

Now that we are United For Change, let's keep the movement going by getting more people involved. Help us by spending your dollars on more American made products. As Mark Twain said, "It's easier to fool people than to convince them they have been fooled." For years, Americans were fooled into thinking a service-oriented economy would sustain America forever. Now that we see that's not realistic, we have to convince businesses that America is the best place to do business.
