    if we want to help our union brothers and sisters in their fight.

    Say no to foreign-made products and outsourced jobs; buy American, and in particular, buy union-made.

      I just bookmarked the site. I just came back from Ireland and noticed a distinct pride in Irish Made product advertising.(I stocked up on some lovely sweaters) It would be nice if American made stuff was marketed just as aggressively. What galls me the most is when what one assumes to be long time American made brands say made in China. At that point I refuse to buy and look for alternatives.

      •  Yep--believe me, there are thousands of USA- (0+ / 0-)

        manufactured goods that can be bought. They're harder to find (most often via the Internet rather than one of the big-box stores in our neighborhoods), and yes, they are a little bit more expensive, but I'll guaran-damn-tee that they're more less costly when it comes to preserving American jobs, American manufacturing, and American ingenuity.

        Here are some more sites that I've found helpful:

        Still Made in USA: has links to hundreds of online vendors who manufacture and produce goods in the US.

        Skullduggery: an American company that makes kids' science toys and "matchbox"-type racing cars.

        American Apparel: clothes for kids and fashion-minded young adults made in California

        All American Clothing: good, durable basics for men and women such as jeans, t-shirts, slacks, etc. I've gotten a few pairs of pants for my husband and they're great, no-iron basic khakis for work that don't have any wrinkles. :)
