July is the perfect time to think about ”Buying American“
It’s the celebration of an independent nation, yet in today’s America we are more dependent on foreign goods than ever before in history. We are not prejudiced as to what country, or what practices that country abides by; whether it uses child labor, inhuman working conditions, or countries that politically are not our friend.
Don’t be like the people who don’t know or care where products are made anymore. We all want to save a buck, but to what degree. Bargain shoppers today will buy American made products as long as they are not more expensive than the imports.
Why Buy American?
There are many good reasons.
American made products keep jobs here, providing support for our families, our communities, our country, our way of life.
American made products are subject to strict safety and environmental regulations.
American made products insure that labor regulations, including child labor restrictions, are not circumvented.
American made products positively impact our trade balance. Demand for imported products negatively impacts our trade balance.
American made products are now more competitive than ever with the imports.
Many Alex Orthopedic, Inc. products are made in America. We are Proud that we can uphold these high standards and keep our neighbors working, with all the above implications. There has never been a better time to buy than July.
