The problem is that people don't think past WHERE it is made to HOW it is made. If some company is allowed to build cars in the USA while paying $2.12 an hour, while forcing a pace that totally disables a worker after 12 or 15 years, while contributing nothing to health or retirement benefits, is that what we will accept? I wouldn't accept that for one second. But the LOGIC in "buy American built" is that selling product is all we should worry about. For that message, we should be paid advertising fees like the other Madison Avenue PR firms.

The way I see it, the plants in shelby and corker's districts make stuff in America too, so a campaign like this includes helping them. That's what I'm getting at. If you can take the emotion out of it for a minute, it's an all pro-employer campaign with no space for worker rights that I can see.

"Keep it made in America" does not say one single thing about wages, hours, or conditions of how it's made. Those are my first considerations. Made in America by slave labor? Like the new Chrysler contract? Is that what we want?
