Ya .... there's a big demand worldwide for beard shampoo and yuppie crap. .... NOT
This article clearly illustrates the lack of any decent manufacturing base in this country, and the sad lack of decent paying blue-collar jobs that go along with that manufacturing base. As someone with a modest income, and an average "American" lifestyle, I not only have no use for anything on this list .... I certainly wouldn't be using the list as a reason to wave my "Made-in-America" flag !!!
Love my Fiestaware! Beats having to worry about lead content in dishes from China.
Three on the list are toiletries. Most toiletries are still made in the USA, but once I accidentally got something made in China and it said not to use near eyes or mouth and it was soap! Even some expensive Oil of Olay products are made in Mexico or China. I always look for pet food made in the US, but that doesn't mean some ingredients aren't from overseas. Better be safe than sorry when it comes to the pets and avoid dog treats and snacks made in foreign countries. That goes for pet toys so lead isn't in the paint. I like Kong chew toys and Nylabone for good American products. The big Little Tikes playhouses and outdoor toys are still made in the USA, but everything else seems to be made overseas now.
One little company in Florida that is trying to get off the ground and build its business is My Liberty Threads. They make screen printed T shirts for real patriots. Check them out. Right now the website is small and they travel the gun show circuits to make a living, but the products are 100% American made and I can say first hand that there is a difference in fit and quality hands down. GO USA!
Actually the Quivvers thing looks a little gay to me, but that's not really important, I guess.
But I like the 2nd. Base T's or undershirts...They look cool..
I have to get off here now, wife just called me a pig.
American Apparel - made in LA and workers get benefits. Companies like this need to be recognized for their contribution!
