What's the State of American Manufacturing?

November 08, 2015

Thanks to the Alliance for American Manufacturing for the shout-out in their new organizing tool kit!

We agree with their statement that “unfair trade policies and practices have created an economic system that too often disadvantages workers everywhere, leading to a global race to the bottom in terms of wages and quality of life. Our purchases shouldn’t reward the disregard of fair labor and environmental standards.”

At the Good Buy, we’re working hard to turn shoppers into conscious, compassionate consumers “who know where their purchases come from and under what conditions it was produced.” Learn more about the state of manufacturing in the United States and the benefits of supporting U.S.-made products at the Alliance for American Manufacturing’s site.
