President's Day Sales Another Time to Speak UP!

Radio, Television and Internet Advertisements are promoting President’s Day and winter season sales. As the winter season winds down, stores want to move inventory to make room for spring and summer products. For the record, store managers and merchandisers have been working for many months to order and have the items you will see in the stores where you shop available during the spring, summer and fall.

I am pleased to hear from both our supporters and store owners that American manufacturers have experienced an increase in requests for American made products and more new products are on the way. This is good to hear, but the fact of the matter is that you will still be seeing mainly foreign made items in America’s stores as a result of over 70,000 industries that have closed and moved overseas.  Restoring the industries that moved overseas is easier said than done, but the continued interest in businesses reinvesting in America again can reverse the tide of what we have experienced in the last 25 years.

The road to recovery is not going to happen overnight, so our efforts to influence business owners and investors to expand and restore jobs in the U.S.A. are best accomplished with the participation of as many people as possible. By using the “look at labels formula” and directing our purchases to the products still made in America, we demonstrate the benefits of businesses investing in America again which will keep more of our money circulating in the U.S.A. and keep Americans employed.

The goals of the Buy American Made Campaign radio, Internet and newspaper commentaries are to promote every way possible to unite the American people and GET AMERICA'S ECONOMY MOVING AGAIN. Your involvement has helped to keep the Buy American made issues on the minds of a growing number of people and I urge you to get more people involved.  My thanks to the radio program hosts, newspaper editors and Internet sites helping promote restoring industries in America and jobs for Americans.  Together we are helping restore America’s economy one new job at a time.
