Make Sure It’s Made In America

Posted by Homework Houston on 8/02/2013

You vote every day.  With your dollars.  Everytime you buy something, you vote for that product, what it stands for and where it is made.  You have the ultimate vote.  If the company does not get your financial support, it goes out of business.

You can create more American jobs.  In fact, if everyone spent just $3.33 more each year on products made in American, we’d create 10,000 new American jobs.

If you want to vote for locally produced foods produced by Texas farmers, buy it.  If you want to support local companies that employ local people, shop there.

Fortunately, product labeling requires the origin of the product.  But, beware of the deceiving marketing ploys.  Look beyond the obvious marketing statements and look for the fine print.

The Made In America store in Elma, NY is getting a lot of attention lately.  They spend 25 hours on each product researching the company and making sure that it is 100% Amerian made down to the packaging.  You can shop online at www.madeinamericastore.com.

Are you aware of a great American made product you’d like to recommend?  Leave a reply below.

Do you homework.  Check labels.  And encourage everyone you know to buy those products made in the Houston area, Texas or the United States.  Together, we can provide a real stimulus to the U.S. economy.

    1. I need a company to come “tune up” my home theater system. Having some issues and not sure if it is cable, TV or receiver. Also want to switch out BlueRay player and check all the programming on my universal remote.

    2. I want to add a home based wifi personal cloud to store data from all our laptops and mobiles and be able to have it accessible from anywhere. Need help with selecting appropriate device and then partitioning device so that some files can be restricted from view by all family members.

    Good Afternoon Mark,

    When will you be having Steve Davis back on your homework show?

    I have jotted down his email on one of your broadcasts and I have lost it.

    Thanks and best regards,
    Ziggy

    Enjoyed program on entrepreneurs in oil & gas.

    What was the name of the person and law firm on the program?

    Also my sister met Dan Patrick at a function. She is a supporter and I would like to find out where he will be in the coming months to meet him and potentially be a supporter.

    Thank you
