Walmart

January 29, 2013

I had to do a double take when I read this line from an article in USA TODAY printed today:

Now Wal-Mart wants a piece of the action. The behemoth, embroiled over the past year with worker protests and foreign bribery investigations, pledged recently to source $50 billion of products in the U.S. over the next 10 years, says Wal-Mart spokesman Randy Hargrove. They’re not alone. Mendoza says both Caterpillar and 3M have also made efforts to source more in the U.S.

To say this news overjoyed me, is an understatement! Finally, the changes I had hoped to see when I started this blog 3 years ago have come to fruition. We still have alot of work to do to restore Made in USA to its former prominence but it looks like we are heading in a great direction which will restore millions of American jobs in manufacturing. Still, I never thought it would happen so quickly.!
