America's Independence & American Workers!

As we mark the 237th Anniversary of America's Independence on the 4th of July, it is a good opportunity to look at life in the United States of America. So much has changed since our forefathers wrote the Declaration of Independence, when the main focus in 1776 was on the ideals of freedom, peace and justice for all.

For centuries, America welcomed immigrants from around the world seeking job opportunities and to be part of the American dream. In more recent years, with nations of the world seeking to expand jobs for their own people, many jobs left America as part of the new global economy. In 1976, when we marked the 200th Birthday of America, American workers already saw that our industries were becoming more automated. They saw that automation required fewer workers and urged business leaders to retool industries to manufacture the new items constantly being invented in America.

During the last 37 years, there have been many suggestions on ways to maintain and expand jobs in the U.S.A., but those suggestions were largely ignored by America's leaders who could make a major difference. That refusal to act in America's best interest has brought us to the difficult economic conditions we face today.

All of us involved with the Buy American Made Campaign appreciate the enthusiasm of our supporters. Help our efforts by directing more of your purchasing power in support of American Made products at the cash register where it really counts, because Americans want to not only enjoy the freedom we cherish, but the means to support themselves and their families.

Together we have been encouraging private sector businesses to invest in a NEW and Modern Industrial Revolution here in America. It's time for our national leaders to follow our lead. Thanks for spreading the word and Happy 4th of July. Kindly go out and support your local businesses during National Small Business Weekend, the first Friday, Saturday and Sunday of every month.
