Labor 411’s Union-Made Holiday Shopping List!

This holiday season, Americans will spend an average of $700 on holiday gifts. But if each of us spent just $64 of that on American-made products, it would create 200,000 American jobs. The crew here at Labor 411 asks you to remember that your hard-earned dollars are a powerful tool in this economy -- by purchasing Union-made/American-made products, you can help to build a stronger America.

Having trouble finding American-made and Union-made products? Search no more. With only a little bit of effort, we can all do our part. First, be sure to visit Labor 411’s Consumer Products Directory – it’s the definitive source for discovering products made by union members. Next, be sure to check out ABC’s Made in America series with its great interactive website.

Throughout December, we’ll be focusing on holiday union-made gift ideas. We’ll send out new lists every week and we will keep adding to the Holiday Shopping catalog on our website, so check back often. We hope you like them and are inspired to give gifts this season that give back in a way that helps us all.

Happy holidays!

In solidarity,
Labor 411
