Awakenings: Made in America

on September 7, 2013

See on Scoop.itAwakenings: America & Beyond

Given a choice of the same product Made in America vs. Made in China which one would you choose? Of course, before making that choice would you first check the price? Then, second, would you examine its quality?


Interestingly according to the Consumer Reports National Research Center, 78% of Americans would rather buy an American made product! That’s right, those carrying the label good ol’ Made in the USA!

    I’m not surprised. I think most of us would like to see more American-made products on the market. I’d like to see us stop out-sourcing our industrial base and bring at least some of it back home. It’s not just about quality. It’s also about pride and creating real jobs for people, jobs that pay a living wage!

    If there’s an American product of equal or better quality available I buy American, not communist products. I think of the workers making the products. I am a laid off textile worker of 13 years because of Chinese products. We can’t compete on the world market with a country using a workforce paid in bowls of rice.

    Definitely made in America! Support our country, our citizens, our workers first.

  5. I always check the labels to see where the product was made–especially if I am at Walmart. I buy American only. If he product I’m looking at doesn’t come from America and there isn’t an alternative that does, I leave it on the shelf. We need the jobs!

    I agree with everyone here. Get ready to give up chicken because the U.S. has now allowed China to sell us live chickens and they will not be forced to label them ‘made in china’ plus they will probably breed them with our chickens. We never learn. Poison in baby formula, toxins in toys, Most of our RX drugs and supplements are made in China and it’s hard to catch that. God only knows what mystery meat is in chinese food. It’s up to us as Americans to refuse to buy anything but American made products here in America. Oh and don’t buy hallmark cards–made in China..
