Automobiles: Be American, buy American can be easier said than done!

Automobiles: Made in America is getting harder and harder to find!

Since 2008 over 6,000,000 jobs in the United States have been lost. Of that number over 2,000,000 have been in the manufacturing sector.

These well paying jobs were lost as companies needed to cut employees because of lost sales due to the recession/depression or because these well paying jobs were shipped out of the country.

The reason they were relocated elsewhere is one that boils down purely to economics as the wage/benefits scale in countries like China, India or Vietnam can be a fraction of what it is in the United States.

The result has been that jobs have been permanently lost and replacement jobs for these workers, if they can find one, will typically be paying much less!

Automobile parts and manufacturing, "Made in the U.S.A!"

While finding a car or truck with parts manufactured 100% in America can be difficult, Cars.com has come out with its annual America-Made Index that includes those made with parts and assembly that are 75%+ made in the U.S.A.
