Create Jobs For Americans!

For years America’s consumers have been helping to create jobs for workers overseas at the expense of American workers. It has now reached a point that American made products are hard to find, especially in America’s major retail stores. In order to change this situation and help create Jobs for Americans, I urge you to go out of your way to purchase products with a made in the U.S.A. label. Through our purchasing power we can help:

Create a demand for American made items.
Support products made in the U.S.A. by small and large companies, non-union and union and the self-employed.
Maintain the jobs presently employing Americans.
Expand employment opportunities as businesses see a demand for products made in the U.S.A. With more employment opportunities America’s economy can be revitalized.
Restore a more reasonable balance between imported and American made items in stores across the U.S.A.

The bottom line is as you consider making your purchase, look at the labels to see if they are imported, and look to see if competitive American made items are available for you to consider. This is a time of great change in America and it is up to the American people to support the businesses manufacturing in the U.S.A. that are keeping people employed. Imported items will always be available in America, however, imported items should not be almost 90% of what is available at most stores where we shop. Until we see a fair balance between American made and imported items in all our stores, I urge you to direct your purchasing power to products with a made in the U.S.A. label. If we want positive change to happen, we as America’s consumers have to be the driving force.
