Let's get our jobs back.

  1. Buy American. If you aren't sure - ask. Also look all over the packaging for "Made in __" Packaging may say "Made in America" but also have another tag that indicate that it was also made in another country.

  2. Here is a list of the top outsourcing companies: http://www.iaop.org/content/23/152/1197/ If you deal with the American companies - stop and find another vendor.

  3. E-Mail:

  4. Write one e-mail to your elected officials telling them you are unhappy with the job they are doing. You can find their addresses here: http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml
  5. Send one e-mail to the mayor of your town stating you do not want your taxpayer dollars to be given companies, pro-sporting facilities, etc. while classrooms are underfunded and overcrowded.
  6. Send one e-mail to the "Letter to the Editor" telling how fed up you are with they way politics and your taxpayer dollars are being handled.

  7. When you contact customer service and someone with an accent answers ask if they are in America. If not, this person is working while some unemployed American is out of work Also, do you really want to give personal information to someone living in another country?

  8. Take this entire post and e-mail it to friends and ask them to help and to e-mail it to their friends.

Thank you,

You have just helped change America
