Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) February 13, 2009
For the past two decades, massive numbers of American jobs have been outsourced. Boston-based consultancy Forrester estimates that jobs leave the U.S. at a rate of 12,000 to 15,000 per month. By 2015, Forrester predicts 3.3 million service jobs will have moved offshore. Some analysts claim that the recent years of lost American jobs has contributed greatly to the current economic crisis and recession.
This current state of affairs has resulted in the creation of several movements to encourage Americans to buy products made in the United States. One example is IWantMadeInTheUSA.com. Founder of IWantMadeInTheUSA.com, Christine Siler has made it her mission to help Americans find high quality, dependable products that have been made in the USA. The innovative Web site is a convenient place, where consumers can browse and choose from the many products and manufacturers supporting the nation's economy.
"As more and more American manufacturing jobs vanish, it becomes imperative that the nation takes proactive steps to ensure that the products they buy are Made in the USA," says Siler. "Buying from a company listed on our site will help enrich the lives of millions by investing in American people, American jobs and American manufacturers."
IWantMadeInTheUSA.com is one of many ways citizens are rallying behind products that are made in the USA in order to boost the economy and create and sustain American jobs. Just recently, the House of Representatives voted to include a "Buy American" provision requiring public works projects funded by the 789 billion dollar economic stimulus measure only use American iron and steel. While some are skeptical of the stimulus bill clause, the bill passed with a softening of the provision by stipulating that any government procurement policies comply with World Trade Organization rules. There is no doubt that Americans are losing jobs and outsourcing is one of the many causes.
IWantMadeInTheUSA.com is committed to providing not only a resource for consumers, but also to "taking back America" as their Web site states, "one American at a time." They are part of a movement of Americans that are doing their part to help boost the nation's economy, while supporting premium products from high quality American manufacturers.
