Work Boots Made in the USA
If you’ve recently started searching for a new pair of boots to purchase you may want to look into purchasing a pair of American-made boots. Buying American-made products is about much more than just choosing superior quality. When you purchase a pair of American-made boots you are helping invest in America. Did you know that “If every American spent an extra $3.33 on U.S.-made products, it would create almost 10,000 new jobs [?]” Source.
American manufacturers also have to abide by more strict regulations which help protect the environment, which means that they product a lot less pollution. Another thing to consider is that fact that some countries have little or non-existent regulations for working conditions, which means they may take advantage by exploiting their employees. This is not the case with all countries, but one thing is certain, America has very strict regulations ensuring that employees are fairly treated and fairly paid.
