We All See How Long Change Takes!

Every supporter of the Buy American Made Campaign has seen that more people are checking labels to see exactly where products are made and it has been a real eye opening experience.

When I go shopping, I ask store managers to show me what American made items they have available. I ask them if their distributors are offering them a larger selection of American made items. From what I see and from what I hear from consumers the majority of food items are made in the U.S.A, but when it comes to clothing, shoes, electronics, furniture and hundreds of others, foreign made still dominate the stores.  However, store managers are telling me that they see more American made products on their available merchandise sales lists. They feel this is happening mainly because America’s consumers are requesting American made items and because consumers are being more selective with what they buy. The reaction of consumers continues to help America’s businesses making and assembling products here in the United States of America, which means more American made products are available to both local and MEGA stores.

What people are clearly seeing is that outsourcing industries and jobs around the world went on for too many years. Now it’s up to America’s consumers to change the balance of what they decide to purchase which will benefit all Americans in the future. Quite frankly, there is no reason why the clothing we wear and the majority of items we use in our daily lives can’t be made in America again.

Together America’s consumers are making real change happen. Let’s stay focused so all Americans benefit in the long run. Kindly spread the word!
