Although the title speaks solely to Christmas, we feel all Holidays celebrated this time of year should strongly consider gifts to be Made in the USA. That may sound flag totting, a bit arrogant, or not Worldly enough in approach, but the American working class needs your help more than ever before, and what better time to offer your support than in this season of giving.
ABC World News with Diane Sawyer ran an article last week citing that if every American spent $64 on US Made goods that would create 200,000 jobs. And that’s not a lot of money to spend, considering the average American pays out $704 on shopping this time of year.
Now our little American made furniture plant has been picking up steam lately, and we thank you dearly for that. Our workforce has just entered full-time work again after several months on and off with part-time employment, many struggling to make ends meet. To say the times have been easy would be a lie, to say they’ve been a learning experience and a testament to the good we as people bestow, would be accurate and true.
Help us and other businesses producing American made products thrive and succeed in a Worldly model that so desperately needs our involvement.
In the same realm as energy efficient appliances, organic foods, alternative medicines, American made falls right into the same category as one in need of desperate action and understanding.
