WASHINGTON – Buying American is in a strong comeback mode. From the airwaves to the water cooler to social media, people are talking about the return of jobs and manufacturing to America.
Today, creating American jobs is – or should be – the nation’s No. 1 priority.
But it’s not so easy to find out what’s made in America these days.
That’s where Roger Simmermaker’s “My Company ‘Tis of Thee” comes in handy.
This book, subtitled, “50 Patriotic American Companies American Consumers Should Know About,” is just that – a guide to businesses serious about doing business in America.
It brings well-deserved recognition to 50 unsung business heroes. Through their economic patriotism, each company has contributed to the resurgence of Buying American by creating, making or selling American products. The companies profiled in “My Company ‘Tis of Thee” aren’t the most well-known to the American consumer but they are at the forefront of generating American jobs, which is essential to regaining and maintaining America’s economic might.
“We vote with our ballots only once every two or four years at the polls, but we vote with our dollars every day at the stores or on the Internet,” says Simmermaker, who writes a regular column on the subject for WND. “In an economy where Americans are increasingly focused on ways to create more American jobs, it’s often easier than we think to keep jobs, profits and the tax base within our borders using the money that we’re already spending. Every purchase that we make produces paychecks for people. By patronizing the companies profiled in this book, we can ensure that more of those paychecks will go to ‘We the People.'”
“My Company ‘Tis of Thee: 50 Patriotic American Companies American Consumers Should Know About” makes it easy to buy American — so there will always be American products left for Americans to buy.
