Reducing Long-Term Unemployment!

For several years supporters of the Buy American Made Campaign have made some impressive statements in support of American workers. Together we have promoted American Workers Need You, the Buy American Made Campaign, American Workers Radio, Made in America and National Small Business Weekend. The main goal of these efforts has been “Reducing Long-Term Unemployment in the U.S.A." and restoring job skills.

After years of jobs being outsourced around the world, we see in order to turn America’s future around, it is imperative that America’s consumers spend more of their dollars on American made items and less on imports. This will help because businesses want to sell what customers are purchasing, suppliers want to supply what businesses are ordering, and in the process many levels of American workers remain employed.

I’m sure you agree there is no excuse why clothing and other products once mainly made in the U.S.A. are now mainly made in foreign countries. It is a statistic that must be changed. I am pleased to report that as a result of America’s consumers speaking up and spending their dollars in support of American made, a growing number of businesses have expanded manufacturing in the U.S.A. I urge you to help the them maintain and expand their product lines by seeking out “Made in the U.S.A.” where you shop. You can also Google “Made in the U.S.A.” to find out what products are available and where they are sold or make an on-line purchase from their Internet sites.

This is Michael Blichasz. I am pleased to hear from our supporters. I invite you to listen to American Workers Radio every Wednesday from 11 A.M. to 12 Noon on 860 AM Radio, broadcasting in Philadelphia and the TriState area. You can also listen live or to rebroadcasts from the links on the front page of
