A Legacy of Beautiful Work: Walmart Investing in America
Of all the virtues I wish to instill in my children, valuing hard work is among the most important. Whether pursing a college degree, clocking in at your 9-5 or chasing your dream, there is an incredible beauty to hard work. The courage to commit your time, the motivation to seek higher accomplishments is the foundation of high self esteems and a positive self worth.
And America is filled with ingenuity, resources and, most of all, people willing and wanting to work.
Walmart’s “Made By” Commitment
I’m proud to be working with Walmart, for many reasons but least of all for their recent commitment to the American worker: through their “Made By” initiative, Walmart is investing $250 billion in products that will support American jobs over the next 10 years. Learn more at www.walmart.com/AmericanJobs.
In order to accomplish this, the plan is to increase what is already bought and by helping to bring in even more of U.S. production in areas such as textiles, household goods, and toys. Walmart believes in supporting the American dream by helping to create more jobs in America, and they’re putting their money on that value. They believe that by creating and keeping jobs in America, they’re helping to rebuild local and national economies.
Walmart is a big company, but for their commitment to the American manufactures, I applaud their efforts. Sometimes it’s hard to know if the products you purchase are Made In America, and Walmart is bringing more of those products to their shelves. I love their recent “Made By” commercials, showcasing how their efforts will improve and support American jobs.
You can browse over 1,000 products that support American jobs that we already sell online at here. Walmart has the best products at Everyday Low Prices, but they know there are some great, undiscovered products that have not yet reached the shelves. Even still, according to their suppliers, items that are made here, sourced here, or grown here – in our own country – account for about two-thirds of what is spent to buy products at Walmart. Walmart have committed to continue to do more.
