Labor Day Honors American Workers!

I am pleased to report that Labor Day 2018, is being celebrated with more American businesses expanding their product lines in the United States and more Americans employed.

Since the first Labor Day celebration in New York City in 1884, many things have changed in the United States. After the first Labor Day celebration, the United States Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September “Labor Day” a national holiday to honor American workers.

During the last 134 years, America has experienced many historic events including: the Industrial Revolution, a major depression, several recessions, world wars, growing automation and in more recent years saw thousands of businesses moving their manufacturing to foreign countries. Because we are American Strong, we have asked our supporters to focus on supporting American made so we can increase job opportunities for America’s workers and expand America’s economy.

As we all see through efforts like the Buy American Made Campaign, positive changes have been happening in the U.S.A. for several years. The goal is to manufacture more than we consume in the United States and have more American made products available for sale around the world. We do not discourage GLOBAL COMPETITION, but seek to insure that American made products are equally available in the United States and for sale around the world.

As always, you’re asked to support your local businesses throughout the year and during National Small Business Weekend, which is the first Friday, Saturday and Sunday of every month.  Small businesses employ over 60 million Americans and with your help that total will continue to grow.
