How Do You Support American Workers?

I start at home – I support Pennsylvania Workers. We start with the hot tubs we carry – ours are the only spas made in PA. In fact, they’re one of few models actually made in the US. If you want to support America, support companies that buy American. Support companies that make stuff in America.

Our supplier’s factory employs real people. Want to see it? You can take a tour – call me and I’ll set it up. Yep, robots can do quite a lot, and one set of high-precision functions are performed by one at our factory, but primarily this factory uses real people – Pennsylvania workers.

And, workers buy stuff. Your money does more. They spend, save, and invest in their own communities. They buy cars, groceries, baseball tickets, pay for college or trade school. They’re multiplying the dollars you spent with us, that we spent with their employer, that their employer pays them.

And, what about the American ideal of doing the right thing; fairness, decency, honesty? In another word – transparency. Buy from an American company like our spa manufacturer and there a pretty good assurance of transparency. Their money flows through American banks. It goes to other private sector-owned suppliers directly, through supplier contracts and negotiated pricing. While our system isn’t perfect – try finding transparency elsewhere in the world. And, don’t forget risk.

There are many world economies exposed to significant risk. If you use transparency as a means to judge risk, your local economy is the most transparent one you’ll find. Here in America, transparency ensures the greatest long-term value for your dollar. Send your money overseas and there’s a real probability the money you spent there will be worth less in the future. The dollar you spent there yesterday is worth less today.

So – who did you help?

I spent in Pennsylvania. Supporting our workers. I helped our economy. Maybe you can join me.  #ISupportPAWorkers #ISupportAmerica
