Nit with me John.  I have never argued a thing about unions.  Argued lots of
other stuff, but not that one.  J

         I remember an argument with Stephen Frye and Jim Nantz on this
forum about whether or not unions had driven manufacturing out of America
with wage demands, back about 8 years ago.

ACE HARDWARE - Made in the USA - Very Encouraging! READ ALL THE WAY TO THE
   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.
Read and do the following......
Unfortunately our politicians and top CEO's (GE etc) 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?
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 USA. Top of my list already...
Yesterday I was in Wal Mart 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 the 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 the 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..."
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 the GE was Made in
MEXICO and the Everyday Value brand was made in - you guessed it. the USA at
a company in Cleveland, Ohio.........
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 in your Address Book 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......

I passed this on .. ... . will you??? If you care about American workers,
you will pass it on.
