Here are a few numbers for you, if that works better for you. (I like numbers.)
- Unemployed: ~$1300-$1400/mo (Note: $330/week x 4.)
- President Obama: ~$65,806/mo (Note: His 2011 income divided by 12.)
- Former Governor Romney: ~$1,141,413/mo (Note: His 2011 income divided by 12.)
- Members of Congress: ~$14,500/mo (Note: Their salary of $174,000/yr divided by 12.)
I write this blog to raise awareness and encourage readers to buy products that are made in the USA. These purchases create jobs. It really is that simple - supply and demand. I do not want to bankrupt you to make these purchases. I even did a post about how I bought something for $1 that was made in the USA. We can talk politics and foreign this and that, but at the end of the day companies supply us with what we are willing to purchase.
Do you feel inspired to check those tags? Our consumer dollars speak volumes. Voting is our right and we should exercise it every chance we get. Every purchase we make also votes for one thing or another. The people featured in the show above are an example of why I want you to spend $64/year on American-made products. That's the equivalent of a coffee purchase at your favorite coffee shop once per month. That purchase creates 200,000 jobs. That's a huge vote.
How will you vote this holiday season? Now that it is nearing, can you vow to spend $64 on a product or products that proudly wear Made in the USA? I would love to hear from you.
I love comments!
