Shopping American Made is not always easy. But when it is... it`s All American.
Arcanum, OH (PRWEB) July 31, 2013
It`s 'Back to School' season! Should consumers look to buy American-made items to help create American jobs, boost the economy, and provide a tax base that supports local communities? ABC World News last reported in December of 2012 that if each American spent just $64 a year on American-made products it will create over 200,000 new jobs (http://abcnews.go.com/WN/mailform?id=14998335). Think about it. People can help create over 200,000 new jobs for American workers with just a few made in America purchases during this 'Back to School' season.
More specifically, if all Americans purchased primarily USA made clothing items this school season, it would support American jobs in a clothing industry that has lost -84 percent of its labor force since 1990. According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, the American clothing industry totaled 938.6 thousand jobs in 1990. Today, there are 148 thousand jobs in the U.S. clothing industry.
The trend of losing American jobs in the clothing industry will continue if consumers are not buying American. Roger Simmermaker of WND reported in March of 2013 that 97 percent of the clothing purchased in the United States is foreign made (http://www.wnd.com/2013/03/getting-apparel-from-that-important-3/). This school season is a perfect time to be mindful of shopping habits. Not everything purchased should be American made in those shopping carts but a few items will certainly help create jobs.
About All American Clothing Co.
At the All American Clothing Co. shoppers can actually trace items back to the American workers they are supporting with the All American Clothing Co. That`s right, consumers can trace All American-made jeans back to the American farmer who grew the cotton with an interactive feature called traceability technology. One purchase falling under traceability technology can ultimately support over 12,000 American farmers who grew the cotton used in their USA made jeans according to the All American Clothing Co.
The company was founded in 2002 when Lawson Nickol made a shocking discovery. To his surprise, his previous blue jean employer began to outsource. After he confirmed this with ownership, Nickol quickly turned in his resignation and started the All American Clothing Co. just a few weeks later with his son BJ. Since, the All American Clothing Co. has become a household name as they only carry USA made clothing items.
American Made products may seem difficult to shop for. They are often hard to find and afford. With this being said, the All American Clothing Co. has always been dedicated to making the American-made shopping experience easy and affordable.
