Why American Made is Important:

“I have been employed in the Lufa Garment Factory for two years. This is my first job ever. From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., six days a week, I produce jackets and pants. The volume is so high—50 to 60 pieces per hour—that is not possible to keep a smiley face. My monthly pay is 2,500 taka [about 34 U.S. dollars]. I hardly save any money.  In the last year I got myself three dresses. Each one cost 1,000 taka. Those were my only treats.”    -Shagorika, 18, Garment Worker, Bangladesh

When I read this message, I found it hard to believe that the factory she was referring to was a garment factory that is well known throughout the U.S. This has become a trend in the United States so companies can make an extra buck. To me, the idea of shipping jobs overseas and paying people like Shagorika 34 US dollars a month is flat out wrong (this is roughly 11 cents an hour). In addition to this, the working conditions of being in a factory for 12 hours a day cannot be the greatest. As Shagorika stated, “that is not possible to keep a smiley face.” For me, it is not possible to keep a smiley face because this is what companies are doing today. The consequence of this is that they are costing Americans their jobs. This is proven with the the jobless rate which stands at almost 9.1% (12.5 million), its highest rate since the great depression (over 15 million).

Life Lessons in American History: “The Eagle Has Landed.”

“Houston,Tranquility, Base Here, The Eagle has landed” were the words of Neil Armstrong onJuly 20, 1969 when Apollo 11 landed him and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, Jr. on earth`s moon. The United States mission is considered to be one of the most influential moments in American history. Apollo 11 was launched from the Kennedy SpaceCenter in Merritt Island, Florida on July 16th and was the 5th manned mission and 3rd lunar mission of NASA`s Apollo program. The crew was made up of Neil Armstrong as Commander, Edwin Aldrin as Lunar Module Pilot, and Michael Collins as Command Module Pilot. Armstrong, along with Aldrin landed in the Sea of Tranquility and became the first humans to walk on the Moon on July 21, 1969. With the words, “That`s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Armstrong stepped his first steps on the moon alongside Aldrin, sealing a major accomplishment for the United States.

The life lesson that we would like to share with you in relating to the idea of sending someone to the moon is that anything is possible. As a lesson to all, the United States and NASA had proven that the impossible is possible in sending someone to the moon. So in looking back at a monumental part of American History, the lesson is as follows…

 You can do anything as long as you put your
mind to it, along with your heart and soul.

AND IF YOU FAIL?

 TRY, TRY, AGAIN!!!

Made In USA fact of the Week:

Did you guys know that fortune cookies were made in the USA? It`s true! In 1918, David Jung, a California resident was worried about the poor whom were wondering around the streets of his restaurant. Thus, he decided to create a cookie with an inspirational Bible scripture written on a small piece of paper inside of it. He would then give them out for free on the streets to help those people in need of food and inspiration.

In looking back upon Mr. Jung`s actions, what he did was both inspirational and for the good of others. We here at The All American Clothing Company can relate to the inspirational story about Mr. Jung. Like Mr. Jung, we have an American Made product that helps those in need. Like Mr. Jung, who was worried about the poor not having food, The All American Clothing Company is worried about the job deficit in the U.S. We intend on doing something about it! We can help people in need by giving our customers an opportunity to buy a product that will both create and keep jobs in the U.S!

THANK YOU, American Heroes.

We would like to offer our upmost support and respect in saying THANK YOU to all servicemen and women in our country. On the brink of 9/11 and the 10th anniversary of that fatal day, we here at All American Clothing Co. cannot help but to look back upon that day. In looking back, we remember those Firefighters, Police & Law Enforcement, and EMS personnel who risked their lives on that fatal day in order to save another. We would not be able to enjoy the freedoms we have if it wasn’t for you.  To those servicemen who have served in their lifetimes and to those who continue to offer their serviceto American citizens 10 years later, we say THANK YOU!

Freedom Tee Made in USATo the military forces who are risking their lives overseas so Americans can enjoy their everyday freedoms, we say THANK YOU. Your activity is the ultimate sacrifice that which words cannot explain. We do realize that freedom doesn’t come free and that it takes hard work. YOU are the ones who are putting in the hard work. THANK YOU again.  It is in times of tragedy that we truly find out what good people that we have in this country. In trying to find a positive outlook on that fatal day, we are absolutely positive that our servicemen in this country are true heroes. THANK YOU.

Make It An All American Football Season

It`s about that time. All over the country, thousands of high school football teams have been putting in hard work to be fully prepared for the upcoming season. They have been through countless practices in the scorching heat, even practicing two times a day on occasion. Many people from communities all over the country will attend each and every game to offer their upmost support for their hometown team.

Here is a picture of our local team (notice the coach wearing our All American Cargo Shorts).  What a great example he is setting for future generations! As a coach he is teaching the kids how to work hard and work together as a team to accomplish a common goal.  By wearing USA made he is making a statement about the importance of buying USA made and the impact it can have on our communities.

Did you realize that if every American would shift $1 per day of their spending to USA made goods the impact would be approximately $100 BILLION on our economy!  That can provide an amazing amount of jobs, provides a tax base to support our communities, police, firemen AND schools (including these hardworking student athletes).

I think we (citizens of the USA) can learn a thing or two from these hardworking athletes and coaches.  If we can come together as a nation by supporting each other and working towards a common goal we can accomplish anything! We can fix our economy, provide good jobs for our citizens and strengthen our communities.

We hope to see you out there supporting your local team by cheering as loud as you can…AND supporting your community with a purchase of USA Made goods!

Thanks Coach for your support of USA Made and, more importantly, for the lessons you are teaching the children in our community.

To the Brave Americans in Afganistan – The 76th ERS Squadron

We couldn’t be more proud and more grateful to have received a flag flown by USA troops in Afghanistan. All of us at All American Clothing are excited that the young men and women saving lives over there would take the time to send us an American flag. It means so much.Made in USA Flag flown in honor of All American Clothing

To the 76th Expeditionary Rescue Squadron:  At your request, we sent your squadron t-shirts and socks a few months ago. We the people of the United States wanted you to know we are  proud of you and we are genuinely appreciative of what you accomplish each day. You, the 76th, save lives. The flag we received was flown during a mission that saved two lives and 3 assisted recoveries. You saved the lives of 5 people and assisted in the effort of “Operation Enduring Freedom”. The 76th Expeditionary Rescue Squadron matters. You young men and women saving those lives matter. The people who were saved also matter. And what you are doing for your country matters.

Thank you 76th. We are proud of you.  We are honored that you took the time to send us a flag. That also matters to us. The flag will be displayed now and forward in of honor of all of you.
