3 Reasons Why it’s Important to Shop American

1)    Jobs – Every dollar that we spend on American-made products can help boost the economy and keep our fellow Americans working by creating AMERICAN jobs.  This is extremely important as jobs are being outsourced overseas and more and more Americans are losing work.

2)    Labor/Environment – Production that occurs overseas is often void of human rights and regulations that we have in the U.S. including fair labor, wage, and safety.  Sweatshops contribute to child labor, slave labor, and many other human rights violations.  Buying American helps avoid these barbarous labor conditions.  Moreover, there are many standards within the U.S. that help regulate processes to promote environmentally responsible manufacturing.  These standards include reducing energy use, pollution, and other effects that overseas manufacturing can have on the environment.  Frame USA offers many benefits to its employees and has an ongoing green initiative to help support the environment.

3)    Local Businesses Give Back to Their Communities – American businesses tend to invest in their local communities through various community outreach initiatives and volunteer efforts because they want to see them prosper.  By shopping American, local companies are able to increase their community involve through funding, volunteerism, activism, and more!  Frame USA has many different community outreach initiatives that you can read about here.
