a Negro infidel quest for freedom, justice and equality

Made in the USA?

Have you seen the latest fashions from Mauritius? Where?
Do you even know where Mauritius is located? Neither did I until recently. Well…Mauritius is a tiny island located 600miles off Madagascar; better yet, it’s in the middle of the Indian Ocean, ok!

Recently, I made my first visit to Costco’s. I wanted to check out the goods first before giving up fifty bucks for a twelve month membership. Well… to my surprise, I discovered some good deals and savings on many items from food to clothing, but what really caught my interest was the exact manufacturing logo stamped on the majority of the clothing and food products. Next, I started checking the labels. Not to my surprise, every item was made out of the USA. I put together a simple jean outfit and not one item was made anywhere near the USA: Jeans- China; Shirt-Honduras; Jacket – Vietnam and Shoes – Columbia.

So what are the choices for those who want to buy products made in the U.S.A.?
Peter-Cohansay, ” It’s surprisingly difficult to find companies that actually make their products in America. For instance, you might think that Anheuser Busch Companies (NYSE: BUD) brews its beer in the U.S. However, while it has many plants in the U.S., it also brews in Japan, China and Germany. Hasbro Inc. (NYSE: HAS) makes its Monopoly board game in Waterford, Ireland, not in the U.S. And Wrangler jeans for the U.S. market are manufactured in Central America and Mexico.”
