How Made in USA = Jobs in America
You’ll find us writing a lot about furniture made in the USA here. The importance and value it means to our community and our brand. American made is carried in our namesake and for good reason. Not only are we a 100% Made in USA furniture provider, we also keep track of made in USA news. And hold pride for being a generational family business in America, promoting our working here in America too. Unfortunately we’re somewhat of a novelty these days because of that. Producing made in the USA furniture and still living by our family creed. It’s a far different time from when our founder Cliff Pierce founded our company.
So when we came across the ‘Made in USA’ film by Josh Miller (watch trailer below), we became re-inspired for the work we do as American furniture manufacturers.
The film is called Made in the USA: The 30 Day Journey. Be sure to visit the film website here USA30Days.com and order a copy.
MadeintheUSA.com is also a great resource for “fighting the good fight” and raising the awareness of how made in USA means more jobs and more security here at home. Not only in our future economically, but socially with a deeper commitment to each other as a community.
Read these points below from MadeintheUSA.com’s page WHY BUY AMERICAN:
Why Buy American?
Your Patriotic spending does a lot more than you think. When you buy American-made products, you are making this country better than ever in so many ways. We are in control of our country’s future each time we make a purchase. So, be mindful of your purchase decisions and choose wisely.
The Job Creation Equation
American people spending American dollars on American products equals American jobs. These jobs are the foundation of a thriving economy.
If every American spent an extra $3.33 on U.S.-made products, it would create almost 10,000 new jobs. And, if every builder used just 5 percent more U.S.-made products, it would create 220,000 jobs.
When you buy U.S.-made products, the proceeds remain in the U.S. economy. The money you spend then pays the workers that directly or indirectly created the product you purchased. When workers spend their money on U.S.-made products, the dollars continue to be recycled. Every American worker also pay taxes on wages earned in America.
Keeping America Beautiful
American manufacturers abide by strict regulations to protect the environment. These regulations do not exist in most of the top countries manufacturing and importing their goods into the U.S. causing massive pollution and environmental abuse.
Importing countries shipping their materials overseas to the U.S. is an added toll on petroleum usage and increases unnecessary emissions in our atmosphere.
Importing countries have little or non-existent regulations or standards for working conditions. By keeping our dollars in the U.S., we are not supporting these horrible working conditions (long hours, exploitation of children, extremely low wages, etc.).
By choosing to buy U.S.-made products you are supporting democracy.
U.S. Manufacturing = More Jobs
Each manufacturing job creates an additional 5 – 8 jobs.
