If we stop buying Chinese-made U.S. flags, will flag companies stop outsourcing the work?
The debate about whether American flags should be made in other countries probably began around the time that the first U.S. flag production job was outsourced. Nevertheless, it hasn't stopped since.
Elected officials on national and state levels have fought for legislation requiring American-made flags to be flown at various types of government buildings.
Add Michigan to the growing list.
According to Livingston Daily:
A proposed law...would require U.S. flags at schools and local governments to be made in America.
Of course, these laws all only deal with state, county, and/or federal buildings. If you want to make sure the flag you fly outside of your home or workplace is American-made here's a good place to start.
