Depressing. How would you even know these were foreign companies?
I paid a lot extra to get Firestone tires on my tractor because I wanted USA.
This is really depressing.
Sorry, but I don't see any of these as being a reason why I should switch brands. Most of them still MAKE their products in America, and hire Americans to produce and sell them. How many American jobs would be lost if we boycotted them? How many U.S. companies send their stuff out to be made in other countries? There's no difference. We are truly a GLOBAL economy and relay on GLOBAL trade. There's no country that could be an island unto itself any more.
Of Course they do pay taxes. As the matter of fact, there are 100s of foreign corporations
like Sanofi from France, Nestle from Switzerland, BASF, BMW, Bayer, Siemans, VW, Turner Construction from Germany, this is just a small list.

What about Levi's and Harley Davidson?
Both are iconic American brands that are no longer Made In America.

[BRIEFING.COM] The Russell 2000 crosssed the 1,000 level for the first time ever today and the S&P 500 established a new all-time, intraday high. Those were some of the more memorable highlights of what was an otherwise nondescript day of trading.
By and large, there just wasn't a lot of conviction on the part of either buyers or sellers. The major indices spent time on either side of the unchanged line, but never put a whole lot of distance between themselves and ... More
