Made in the USA
You mean made in China or some other country
Check where products in your house or what you are buying were made, I bet 70% are made in China.
Made in the USA, not anymore. Look at all the products in the stores, most are made in China. All those USA icon products are now made in China or some other country. Try buying something in a store made here in the USA, good luck, and you wonder why your wages are going down and you are losing your benefits. Companies do not want to pay people good wages so they can afford to buy products, they just want BIG profits for themselves so they can live abroad and own all the luxury products and expensive homes. If you want good paying jobs to come back to the USA, start boycotting products made in other countries and start supporting companies that believe in the American worker and want them to make money and have good benefits.
I recently went to buy safety work boots for work at a store known for carrying Made in the USA products. I only found 1 pair of boots that were made in the USA, out of 15 different manufactures. Unreal, went to buy a new coffee maker, all made in China. The new bedroom furniture we bought a few years back, I looked and it was Made in China, Americans do not want to build furniture or Coffee makers or Boots? What are we good for? Service the rich, lick their shoes, clean their extravagant Homes, wash their imported luxury cars?
The workers of America use to be the greatest buying market in the world, we are not anymore. So what do the rich have planned for all us American workers, makes you wonder if we are going to end up as another Mexico or China. Sweat Shops, low wages, high living costs, OH wait we are all ready there. Notice Companies no longer give Cost of Living Raises, now they are called Performance Raises, this was implemented to reduce your bottom line and make sure you are stuck working where you are, because you cannot afford to change jobs. Our Government will help us. What a crock, they work for the rich, not us, but it is our money that is used to make the Corporations Richer and Help them move the jobs aboard. Our Government is not Worker friendly, the Government wants more cheap labor to come into the USA and the good paying jobs to be moved to Sweat Shops aboard so the Rich get even Richer.
Look at the difference in pay from the top and the bottom, it is around 500% now, but yet we all work our arse's off to make the products that are sold. Pay is no longer equated to work, it is equated to the level of education and what contacts you have. So if you only have a High School Education you work for peanuts, the Physical labor and punishment to your body is worth peanuts (funny Sports figures get paid well for all the injuries they incur in their jobs). Interesting fact is that people educated in Public Schools are taught to be Consumers, while kids in Private Schools are taught to be the Corporate Leaders, this was started in the 1950s when the Industrial Revolution started. Corporate Leaders decided they needed Consumers for their products, so Hey let's train them to Buy, Buy, Buy.
John Taylor Gatto taught school for 30 years then quit, he believed: The Public School System is designed to suppress in children the abilities of critical thinking and judgment needed to accomplish great things, and to psychologically warp children so as to be docile, apathetic, uncomplaining employees and consumers when they grow up.
The American worker is a second class citizen, Corporate America looks at us as the enemy and we look at them as tyrants who's only objective is to make us poorer, hurt and suffer. Family Values as the rich Politician's say, what a bunch of BULL, Family Values, what does that mean when the Rich preach that to us, OH I know, turn your heat down to 68 and then wear sweaters, see I am wearing one, while all 5 of their Homes have the heat set at 75 and their showers with 18 shower heads uses more water in one showering then we use to take 10 showers. Oh and they just adore our children (the future Consumers of their constituents) the Rich, Oh they are the Rich. Joe Smoo getting a seat in Congress or the Senate or Hey become President, very unlikely and if he or she did, they would have no friends in Washington, the Rich rule there, not the poor.
So workers of America, what are you going to do to protect yourself and your future and your Consumer Kids future? Stop buying those foreign made products and start supporting Companies that care about the American worker and their Families, it is the only voice and power you have against the Government and their Corporate Cronies, sad that it has to be this way, people like Henry Ford must be rolling over in their graves. He believed that his workers should be able to afford to buy his Automobiles, so he paid them well.
Update 02/25/2008 I have really been paying close attention to where products are made and I´m floored by how many are coming from China. The new furniture we bought 5 years ago was made in China, everything is coming from China. No wonder our wages are stagnant or going down. Where are the politicians taking this once proud and powerful country, into the realm of the 3rd world, where the rich rule and we live in despair and servitude. Are American Corporations so greedy that they disdain the American Worker and their families. They are making Enormous Profits and Salaries, with million dollar bonuses, while their American Workers (the foot soldiers) struggle to survive. The stories about illegal emigrants on the news all the time, is this just a diversion by BIG Money to draw our attention away from what is really important? If all the jobs that have gone to China were here, would they even be a factor? Wake up American, the new Religion GREED is ruining this once great country and our children´s future. One side note: I was watching CNN the other night about the the Democratic candidates, they were saying that most of Hillary Clinton's supporters made less then $55,000.00 a year. The newscaster turned to his panel and said, "I do not think anyone on this panel including me, knows anyone that only makes $55,000.00 or less a year", what does that tell you about the people giving you the news, are they a tad out of touch with what is really going on in America, they must be part of the GREED Religion.

HOW TRUE! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
As you may have heard, each of us will be getting a tax rebate check to stimulate the economy. If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to China. If we spend it on gasoline it will go to the Arabs. If we purchase a computer it will go to India. If we purchase fruits and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala. If we purchase useless stuff it will go to Taiwan and none of it will help the American economy. We need to keep that money here in America. The only way to keep that money here at home is to spend it at yard sales, since those are the only businesses still in the US.
I received this in an email, funny, but close to being oh so true.
