Celebrating cautious optimism for an American-Made future
In advance of Labor Day, Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) President Scott Paul published an op-ed in the Huffington Post. After sharing some details on how the United States bid adieu to much of its manufacturing sector, Paul highlighted his optimism:
I believe a new era of American manufacturing can rise from these ashes. Our auto companies have never made better cars. Our steel mills have never been so efficient. Even our tech industry - Apple and Google among the leaders - are bringing a few jobs back to the U.S. Most astonishing, even Walmart has caught the bug and insists it will be stocking more Made in America products on its shelves. Skepticism is still warranted until we see the results, but these anecdotes provide us with the hope that Made in America is back.
AAM hopes you had a great Labor Day and kept your holiday Made In The USA.
