Be A Trend Setter!

In the last few months holiday shoppers saw for themselves how many of our well-known American brand name items, from clothing to electronics, are now exclusively made overseas.

During 2012 you are urged to Be A Trend Setter and focus all of YOUR buying power on American made items FIRST. There are a growing number of American made items available, but international suppliers have dominated our store shelves for such a long time, that getting back more American made items in our stores will be up to selective consumers like you who want to see the Buy American Made Campaign succeed.

We have already witnessed what the loss of jobs and job skills has done to America and its economy. Now it's time to change the way you shop and what your willing to purchase and show private sector businesses it is to their benefit to expand and invest in America's industries again. Your shopping habits will also encourage stores to feature more American made products.

2012 brings about new possibilities. It’s time to stop pointing fingers about what happened in the past, and take action to restore America’s industries and the jobs that are part of manufacturing, including management, sales and distribution and the creation of new products.

On January 12, 2012, we will officially launch the new American Workers Radio Internet site.
