A helpful movement would be to stop buying things we do not need and specifically ask where its made.
Every time a person goes into a Store and buys a new product a chain of events happens. Of note is the products are reordered through the supply chain, more demand is created for foreign made products.
Manufacturing has the highest multiplier effect out all industries. This is why many towns across the USA are rotting when factories leave.
Be sensible, buy what you need. Request to the merchants and manufactures that you won't buy if it's not made in the USA. If you must buy something foreign made buy it used - it won't create a new supply chain order and reuses, so less waste.
This holiday season so millions will take on debt, often crushing to fit some ideal of the American culture that you must buy things to show your love. These things are all made overseas, those shady companies and big corps pocket huge profits while everyone here suffers.
