Does Buying American Really Matter?
While it’s not a common question, it’s one worth further consideration.
Patriotic spending does a lot more than you think. When you buy American-made products, you’re making this country better and stronger in so many ways. The future of our country is in your hands every time you make a purchase.
Americans buying, American Products = American Jobs
These jobs are the foundation of a thriving economy. If every American spent an extra $3.33 on an American-made product instead of it’s foreign counterpart, it would create almost 10,000 new jobs. If every builder used just 5 percent more American-made products, it would create 220,000 jobs.
American manufacturers operate under strict regulations designed to protect the environment. Other industrialized countries such as China and India do not, which contributes to environmental abuses and global pollution. When you buy American-made products, your investment remains in the U.S. economy. The dollars you spend pay the American workers, who both directly and indirectly created the product you purchased. As workers spend on American-made products, those dollars continue to be recycled in the American economy. Additionally, every American company and their employees pay taxes on wages earned in America.

In supporting Lanco, you support more than a dozen other American-based businesses.
