Made in the USA

Made in the USA

PostBy: theo On: Sun Oct 30, 2011 8:01 pm

Found this on another forum,,, Dont know how much of this is true but if you know of any other product's that are actually made in the USA please list the company and the brand name. I always try to buy USA,,,,,,,,, This is an email that I got and found it to be very interesting. ....


A physics teacher in high school, once told the students that
while one grasshopper on the railroad tracks wouldn't slow a train very
much, a billion of them would. With that thought in mind, read the
following, obviously written by a good American . . .

This probably sounds crazy, but just yesterday I was in Wal Mart
looking for a wastebasket. I found some made in China for $6.99. I
didn't want to pay that much so I asked the lady if they had any others. She
took me to another department and they had some at $2.50 made in USA.
They are just as good.

Same as a kitchen rug I needed. I had to look, but I found some
made in the USA and they were $3.00 cheaper. We are being brain washed
that everything that comes from China and Mexico is cheaper. Not so.
That is also why I don't buy cards at Hallmark anymore. They are made in
China and are expensive. I buy them at Dollar Tree....50 cents each
and made in USA.

Check this out. I can verify this because I was in Lowe's the
other day for some reason and just for the heck of it I was looking at
the hose attachments... They were all made in China .
The next day I was in Ace Hardware and just for the heck of it I
checked the hose attachments there.
They were made in USA. Start looking .....

In our current economic situation, every little thing we buy or
do affects someone else - even their job. So, after reading this email,
I think this lady is on the right track.. Let's get behind her!

My grandson likes Hershey's candy. I noticed, though, that it is
marked made in Mexico now.
I do not buy it any more.

My favorite toothpaste Colgate is made in Mexico... Now I have
switched to Crest. You have to read the labels on everything....
Good idea . . .. One light bulb at a time . . ..

This past weekend I was at Kroger . .. . I needed 60W light
bulbs and Bounce dryer sheets.
I was in the light bulb aisle, and right next to the GE brand I
normally buy was an off-brand labeled, " Everyday Value ..." I picked up
both types of bulbs and compared the stats they were the same except
For the price . . . The GE bulbs were more money than the
Everyday Value brand but the thing that surprised me the most was the
fact that GE was made in MEXICO and the Everyday Value brand was made in -
get ready for this - the USA in a company in Cleveland , Ohio.
So throw out the myth that you cannot find products you use
every day that are made right here...

So on to another aisle - Bounce Dryer Sheets... Yep, you guessed
it, Bounce cost more money and is made in Canada... The Everyday Value
brand was less money and MADE IN THE USA! I did laundry yesterday and
the dryer sheets performed just like the Bounce Free I have been using
for years and at almost half the price!

My challenge to you is to start reading the labels when you shop
for everyday things and see what you can find that is made in the USA -
the job you save may be your own or your neighbors!

If you accept the challenge, pass this on to others in your
address book so we can all start buying American, one light bulb at a
time! Stop buying from overseas companies!

(We should have awakened a decade ago....)

Let's get with the program and help our fellow Americans keep
their jobs and create more jobs here in the USA ...

In 1950 manufacturing accounted for about 1/3 of all employment in the USA. Now it is down to about 10% of all employment.

Some jobs at Ford Motors that used to bring home $24 per hour are now paying $14 per hour. Right or wrong, this is the sad reality of how we will bring back manufacturing to the USA. We will do it by paying far less for it.

Up until March, I was in manufacturing, making just under $27/hr. Now I make $0/hr and if I can avoid it, I'll never work in a machine shop again.

It's a damn shame, but D.C. doesn't value making things anymore and hasn't since at least NAFTA. I won't go down with the ship. It's the service sector for me! :)

Carhartt has ceased production of their USA, Union-Made Product Line. We will continue to carry the USA Made Carhartt clothing while supplies last.

For over 119 years, Carhartt has manufactured premium workwear known for exceptional durability, comfort, quality of construction, and fit that you can feel in the fabrics and see in the performance. This historic line of clothing, up until recently, was only produced in America. However times and economies have changed leaving only a handful of pieces of Carhartt clothing made in the USA.
