So today, I am in WalMart and feel like I have nothing better to do than check the labels and see where there products are made. Sam Walton is rolling over and over and over again in his grave, very few are made in the USA.
Dritz Elastic? Made In China. Non-stick brownie pan? Made in China but I opted to pay more and purchased a Pyrex pan made in USA. Yesterday at JC Penney every shoe I picked up was made in China. Why are we doing this? Why are we purchasing products that support a country that is communistic and hates Americans? If we quit buying, the would have to change back to our country.
I lamented the other day that even our Girl Scout badges are made in China.
However, I went to the dollar store the other day and purchased dishwasher detergent...made in USA.
I love Ryka shoes and was disappointed to see they are made in China. They used to be made here, but the founder sold out to Brown Shoe Company and they have all their shoes made in China as far as I can tell. Brown Shoe company is also the parent company of Famous Footwear and are pulling out of our small town, leaving us to shop WalMart, PayLess or travel at least an hour away.
They are closing their doors, when relocating to a better spot in town would increase their business. They are closing their doors and not offering a job to their employees that have been with them for as long as 14 years.
Kicked to the curb like trash!
That is what is going to happen to all of us if we keep buying Chinese made products. This year I can honestly say my Christmas gifts to friends and teachers were...made in the USA! What has happend to our country? We are being sold out and selling out to China and while I hear many complain about it, I don't see many doing anything about it.
Our jobs are going to India, China, Mexico anywhere companies can open a sweat shop, pay a pittance to the peopl and not have to worry about insurance and benefits. They want our business and all the while they are giving us the business!
I decided today if I need things, I am going to check out my local antique and thrift stores first, I am pretty sure they will have more things made in the USA than WalMart, Penny or Famous Footwear!
