More Media Reports Reflect Our Concerns

Every week more Americans are speaking up in support of businesses producing American made and employing American workers. In the last year we have all seen more of the news media promoting jobs and job skills, education in schools that will create graduates ready to enter the workforce upon graduation and also restore America’s economy. We thank the news media for their ongoing support.

Recently, reporter Mario Diaz from PIX 11 In New York attended the air show at Jones Beach and at Latrobe, PA. The air shows presented by the United States Air Force Thunderbirds and the United States Navy Blue Angels attract thousands of supporters who also purchase a lot of memorabilia. When Mario Diaz went to the air show and examined the shirts and hats for sale, he discovered that NONE of the items with the patriotic logos of the Blue Angels or Thunderbirds were made in America. The logos are licensed by the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Navy, but none of the items were made in the U.S.A.

As thousands of people were mesmerized by what they saw being performed in the skies, merchandiser tents on the ground were filled with 100% foreign made souvenirs. I encourage you to view the report and the video of the Blue Angels which is posted on the front page of We can't allow items that reflect pride in America to be licensed to companies that are not fully supporting America’s industries and American workers. Wherever you shop, take a few extra minutes to look at the labels on everything you’re prepared to purchase. If they don’t offer you a reasonable balance between American made and foreign made products, maybe you should reconsider your purchase and shop elsewhere. Your actions continue to speak louder than words, but your words of disappointment help drive the point home to the businesses that can and should be helping us restore more jobs for American workers. Thanks for your help and thanks for spreading the word!
