School Supplies Are Just Some Of Thousands!

In just a few weeks millions of America's young people will be returning to school. As you are out shopping look at every label because school supplies are just a few of the thousands of items now outsourced around the world which could still be providing jobs for American workers.

20 years ago, the majority of clothing, school uniforms and other supplies were made in America. In the past 20 years, the supply of American made items has dropped as merchandisers and investors looked for profits rather than the stability of their customers who are Americans in need of jobs.

As business owners and investors saw that they could get products made overseas for less and then sell them to America’s consumers for American made prices, merchandisers continued to bypass American manufacturers. The Buy American Made Campaign continues to influence tens-of-thousands of its supporters to seek out American made and make purchases with the goal of reducing unemployment in America.

While shopping around, I saw there are more American made school supplies available this year. I also saw NO REASON that the school supplies and many other products should not be made in the U.S.A. again. In today’s global economy it is important to bring foreign and domestic products in balance so that every nation can benefit and more Americans can have jobs. I’m looking forward to the day we can say there are more jobs available in America, than people to fill the jobs. Thanks for supporting American made products and spread the word.
