A recent report by the Data of U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that American apparelemployees have dropped -85% since 1995.
In 1995, the number of U.S. Apparel Employees exceeded over 800,000.
Today that number hardly exceeds 100,000.
What do you guys think is the cause of this? What can be done and how can this be improved?
According to my 8 year old cousin Griffin, the answer is simple. (NOTE: Griffin was asked the following questions without any prior knowledge on the ideals of American Made)
His answer to the question 'what is the cause?' was in quote, “The cause of this is because we are buying stuff from China and not buying the stuff we need to make our own stuff in the USA.”
Griffin also answered the questions of 'what can be done?' and 'how is this improved?' stating, “By making our own stuff instead of buying stuff from China and other countries. We have to buy our own products for us.”
Just think, if its that simple for an 8 year old--Why isn't it that simple for all of us?
