Buying American-Made Holiday Gifts Could Create Jobs

This holiday season, if you buy some of your presents labeled “Made in America”, rather than made elsewhere around the world, you could be helping create thousands of jobs here at home.

According to a report by ABC World News, the average American will spend $700 on gifts this holiday season. If $64 of that $700 was spent on something made in America, 200,000 jobs would be created.

This map of the United States can help you find American products that are made near you.
