Seeing that a product is “Made in the USA” means so many things. Firstly, buying something made in our country directly impacts the economy and helps us make a better future for ourselves and our children.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. The U.S. has higher standards compared to other countries, which means that the product will be of higher quality. The company designing it will use better materials since we need to adhere to certain standards. Other countries will often go for the cheapest option, which is not only bad for consumers but also for the environment.
The standards cover working conditions as well, and you can be sure that what you buy from your neighbor isn’t a product of cheap labor. It’s about so much more than patriotism. You are investing money in quality and improving both your own life and the lives of workers.
Companies from all over the world are looking for the cheapest options, hoping that they will generate higher profit, and this is wrong. We need to think about our own future and improve the overall quality of life instead of supporting cheap labor. While it might seem like national pride, it is the only way to improve the economy, ensure fair working conditions, and prosper.
