ABC World News with Diane Sawyer’s “Made in America” series has continued far past the coverage Manchester Wood received as one of the “Made in USA” companies that supplied products towards the renovating of a Dallas home earlier this year with all American made items.
This holiday season they have taken an in-depth look at what Americans can do to help our domestic economy as we shop for gifts this Christmas.
A few interesting facts they discovered:
In the 1960s, nine out of every 10 products Americans bought for the holidays were made in America. Today easily more than half of what we buy is foreign-made.
If Americans spent $64 this holiday on an item made in America, we could create 200,000 jobs right now.
If it still sounds like a decent chunk of change consider that the average American spends $700 on Christmas or holiday gifts.
We believe wholeheartedly in this work above as they research the issues and discover the solutions towards a recovering economy. As we discussed in our previous blog, “The Gift That Keeps Giving: The Holidays for Manchester Wood,” the Christmas season to us a symbol of Gratitude and thanks for the gifts bestowed upon us.
