Take Every Opportunity to Promote American Made!

Every day we hear new reasons why jobs LEFT the U.S.A. but it is more important now to focus on our future so we don’t repeat our past mistakes!

As the American people saw industries close, jobs and skills lost, and more buildings with For Sale and For Rent signs, it should have been a red flag for EVERY American, especially political leaders, local businesses and American workers. Some people tell me they thought other types of jobs would replace those being lost, while others say they did not know what to do or who to contact to voice their concerns.

These responses could be understood for a year or two, but as years passed and employment opportunities and job skills diminished, there should have been a major public outcry from the people losing jobs in every sector of America's employment base. The For Sale and For Rent signs didn't just pop up over night, they had been going up on business properties for years!

In order to change our situation, I urge you to be a voice for the Buy American Made Campaign by speaking up EVERYWHERE you shop and focusing your spending power on products still being made in the U.S.A. As Americans we don't want to lose another business, another employer, or see another person unemployed because imported products were permitted to replace American-made products from the industries that decided to move overseas. 

         As Americans we can take control of our future by creating a demand for American made products of every type so that businesses see the benefit of restoring and expanding manufacturing in the U.S.A. As we create a demand for more American made products, empty buildings could come alive with new industries and employment opportunities.

         As Americans we have the ability to move mountains if we set our minds to it. If we don't go out of our way to support one another, employment opportunities will not be restored and we will have no one to blame but ourselves. Thanks for your participation. Email me at:
