We can’t all go to the White House during Made in America Week July 15 – July 21, 2019 but we can all celebrate Made in America Day and Week together as Americans. US manufacturing isn’t just about politics, its about the hard working men and women across our nation who work every day to produce quality products that are used in every aspect of our lives. From toothbrushes, to clothing, to automotive and industrial components, and more.
Those employed in American manufacturing take pride in the products they produce and many of these products create an average of 7.4 jobs in other sectors in other industries.
For the past 21 years BuyDirectUSA.com has supported the efforts of millions of American workers. Back, then we were seeing the effects of NAFTA and the loss of jobs around the country. From textiles, to the automotive industry and beyond. Before NAFTA there was nearly 18 million Americans employed in manufacturing compared to the 11.5 million in 2009.
Now in 2019, that number has increased to 12.8 million which is around the same number it was back in 1941. By the way, we won WWII in part because of our manufacturing abilities and the willingness of Americans to unite on the war efforts.
Thanks to innovation and technology, we are producing more goods than ever but there is still room for improvement. We still produce far too many goods outside of the US including medications, vitamins, medical supplies and equipment, electronics of all kinds and much more.
We hope that you will join us this week in supporting the nearly 13 million people who work in manufacturing by purchasing at least one product that was manufactured in the USA.
During Made in American week we are also taking the time to recognize and applaud our advertisers who are manufacturers and retailers that want to keep jobs in the USA and bring manufacturing back home.
