On a cool spring morning in Washington D.C. many leaders of American Manufacturing gathered at the National Press Club. They came together from many businesses and geographic areas in the United States to discuss U.S. trade laws, American jobs and the upcoming Presidential election. The committee incorporated speakers from both parties and from the public and private sector, including those representing industries and workers, as well as prominent writers, scholars, trade association executives and economists who focus on manufacturing and trade policy issues. Among the above was a large group of small business owners including the All American Clothing Co.
Speakers at the Renaissance of American Manufacturing included U.S. Senator Jeff Merkely from the state of Oregon, Executive Director of the Alliance for American Manufacturing Scott Paul, Neil Orringer, who was appointed by the Obama Administration to serve in senior national security and economic policy, and former United States congressman Robert L. Ehrlich. All spoke about why we need manufacturing in the United States, what solutions would work best in regards to U.S. trade laws and what has gone wrong in regards to the loss of U.S. jobs. Many manufacturers spoke about China, the decline in U.S. manufacturing and what the upcoming presidential candidates should be planning in regards to American manufacturing. President of the All American Clothing Co, Lawson Nickol strongly felt that progress was made stating, “The attendees were truly interested in the USA jobs and the USA manufacturers and not about individuals and political parties. It was a bi-partisan meeting all the way.”
As for the leadership at the All American Clothing Co, USA manufacturing is one of the most important agendas in this country. A bi-partisan government could create and protect many more jobs in this economy than what they currently do. In the opinion of the management of All American Clothing Co. Mr. Nickol says, “Meetings at this USA administrative level and this type of agenda will help to spread and support the importance of American made manufacturing through many outlets. A specific goal in our company is to continue making clothing in the USA and create viral efforts to educate the public.”
