Starting today, you should always look for for AMERICAN MADE items.
Even in large retails outlets where chines junk is the norm, just ask the manager/ staff if they have any AMERICAN MADE products. Do this EVERY TIME you go shopping!! It might be a bit odd at first but you can get used to it. Just have your spouse friend kids parents do the same thing. Just ask the store manager EVERY TIME if they have US Made items!
They will get sick of this and will bring it up on their next meeting with suppliers and and the wholesale suppliers will get tired of this shortly too after so in a few weeks and may be months in some cases you we will all notice some American items. Just like some of the hand tools in Home Depot starting this years ARE MADE IN US (have not seen that in the passed 15years until this year) ........................... With that targeted consumer demand will come some jobs..... etc . NO MAGIC JUST A LITTLE ANNOYANCE on our favorite retailers. PS. buy nothing day will not work on a large scale but BUY AMERICAN will work if you ask you family friends neighbors to do the same. I think this will be a very popular movement. PS 2 . Congress will not help us to create jobs(Chinese manufactures groups gives millions to US Congress reps.) but we could do it buy demanding American good OVER AND OVER AND OVER from our retailers until some is doing something about it. Don't worry they will do it because they will see money in it!! (increased demand)
