Would you pay a few extra dollars for a product made in the USA?
To support our manufacturing base in the USA, help keep jobs here?
i have tried to buy more American made goods that usually cost a little more, so more in the last 6 months. The temptation to buy cheaper goods is great but the benefits are less than stellar when you think about the poisons and unregulated standards that many foreign countries governments use.
Every week I read about poisons in food, products and goods that are imported from other countries and we really can't afford to risk our health and the future generations as well.
Supporting American jobs is primary but don't forget that the politicians made it appealing for manufacturers to go overseas.The cheaper work force is not paying off in the long run.
It depends on the product and the quality of it. It's not a popular answer I'm sure, but foreign cars are better than US cars in my experience. Ironically enough, many foreign cars are assembled here in the US so even though its a foreign product, a US worker is assembling it. Having had both Nissan's and Chevy's, my Nissan gave me not one ounce of trouble with only minor work needed in addition to regular maintenance. Once the Chevy (both of them) got over 100k it was one thing after another after another, constant repairs and they didn't last that long. The only exception was my Saturn, an American car I would have gladly bought again and again, but unfortunately they stopped making those. I guess they were too easy for us to work on ourselves without going to the dealership lol. sigh.
It depends on the product. For things like electronics and cars, I would actually do the opposite and pay extra for foreign products. If it was something like tools or clothes even, I probably would. I don't think spending more on American products would help our manufacturing base too much though. It's like saying vegetarians are saving animals by not eating meat.
I think this is a hrad question to answer. Many people will say that buying more MADE IN USA products will improve the economy but how many do? I have found that buying local products or any made in america products are way more expensive. I personally cannot afford to do that. As much as I would like to, I couldnt.Besides, who has the time to check every product to see where it was made and then find an American made alternative?
of course , we should look at the quality price ratio and try to buy american whenever possible
With the assumption that I could afford to pay a little extra, yes I would. I think it is important that we try to support companies who produce their products right here in America. It is unfortunate that it is becoming quite difficult locating American made products these days.
