We would like to encourage everyone to be a part in helping out our future generations in purchasing U.S. Made goods. The goal is for us to create as many American jobs as possible for our future generations. As it stands, jobs are still hard to come by which will leave it difficult for future generations to find work. To get a better understanding about the unemployment crisis, we are going to take a look at recent college graduates as they seem to be our next generation. Currently, the unemployment rate for college graduates who are of ages 20-24 is at 14.5% This is significantly higher than the national rate at 9.1% My first thought when I heard this was shouldn’t the unemployment rate for college graduates be lower than that of the national rate? I mean, Kids are being told to go to college in order to attain an education that will better prepare them for a job. Yet, a college education is not enough for them to find work. To me, there are a few factors that may make this number higher. The first is the quality of job that a college graduate may be looking for may be more difficult to attain. It`s easier for a someone to get a job at a fast food restaurant than it is for a recent grad who is trying to start a career. The second is that the number of quality jobs that a college graduate is seeking is in lower quantities than the jobs that are available at places like factories and fast food restaurants. This leaves a more competitive job search for college grads, leaving a select few with jobs and many without.
With this being said, there are hardships for our future as we know it. But, we can do something about it! We can create more jobs for our future generations just in buying American Made products! We hope that next time you go shopping that you look at the label to see if it is made in America before you purchase the product. We hope that next time you are shopping online, you decide to search Made In America products instead of following trends.
