PLEASE PAY ATTENTION FOLKS...
THIS IS YOUR BUSINESS!!!!!!
Costco sells Goodyear wiper blades for almost half the price that you will
pay on the outside and they are made in the U.S.A.
Unfortunately our politicians and top CEO's have pushed for trade to China
and Mexico for years so Americans are now out of work. Did you know that
there is no electric coffee maker made in the US and that the only kitchen
appliances made in the US is Viking?
This information came from a report made by Diane Sawyer. Hopefully this
has changed or will soon!!
I DIDN'T KNOW HALLMARK CARDS WERE MADE IN CHINA !
That is also why I don't buy cards at Hallmark anymore,
They are made in China and are more expensive! I buy them at Dollar Tree -
50 cents each and made in USA...
I have been looking at the blenders available on the Internet. Kitchen Aid
is MADE IN the US. Top of my list already...
Yesterday I was in WalMart looking for a wastebasket. I found some made
in China for $6.99. I didn't want to pay that much so I asked the lady if
they had any others. She took me to another department and they had some
at $2.50 made in USA . They are just as good. Same as a kitchen rug I
needed. I had to look, but I found some made in the USA - what a concept!
and they were $3.00 cheaper.
We are being brainwashed to believe that everything that comes from China
and Mexico is cheaper. Not so...
I was in Lowe's the other day and just out of curiosity, I looked at the
hose attachments. They were all made in China . The next day I was in Ace
Hardware and just for the heck of it I checked the hose attachments there.
They were made in USA .
Start looking, people . . ...In our current economic situation, every
little thing we buy or do affects someone else - most often, their job.
My grandson likes Hershey's candy. I noticed, though, that it is now
marked "made in Mexico ." I don't buy it anymore.
My favorite toothpaste Colgate is made in Mexico ...now I have switched to
You have to read the labels on everything.
This past weekend I was at Kroger . . . I needed 60W light bulbs and
Bounce dryer sheets
I was in the light bulb aisle, and right next to the GE brand I normally
buy -- was an off-brand labeled, "Everyday Value." I picked up both types
of bulbs and compared them: they were the same except for the price . . .the
GE bulbs cost more than the Everyday Value brand, but the thing that
surprised me the most was that GE was made in MEXICO and the Everyday
Value brand was made in - you guessed it - the USA at a company in
Cleveland , Ohio .
One Light Bulb at a Time...................
It's Way past time to start finding and buying products you use every day
that are made right here.
So, on to the next aisle: Bounce Dryer Sheets... yep, you guessed it,
Bounce cost more money and is made in Canada . The Everyday Value brand
cost less, and was MADE IN THE USA! I did laundry yesterday and the dryer
sheets performed just like the Bounce Free I have been using for years, at
almost half the price.
My challenge to you is to start reading the labels when you shop for
everyday things and see what you can find that is made in the USA - the
job you save may be your own or your neighbor's!
If you accept the challenge, pass this on to others so we
can all start buying American, one light bulb at a time!
Stop buying from overseas companies - you're sending the jobs there. (We
should have awakened a decade ago....)
Let's get with the program and help our fellow Americans keep their jobs
and create more jobs here in the USA .
Support the products that are " Made in the USA "
It's up to us to make change happen, don't wait for the government to do it, or you may never see it happen...
Support our manufacturers and the Jobs of the American people!!!!
Pass this on far a wide!
