    Default Teamsters: 'Buy American and Hire American' Executive Order Benefits U.S. Jobs, Produ

    (WASHINGTON) –The Teamsters Union supports today’s signing of the ‘Buy American and Hire American’ Executive Order by President Donald Trump. The initiatives that promote American workers and investment in domestic products will help the country take a positive step toward a stronger economy.

    The order outlines federal procurement policies that will focus on utilizing goods, products and materials produced in the United States. It directs federal agencies to minimize the use of waivers and exemptions that allow them to bypass the Buy American laws that encourage the use of American-made products.

    America has always been at its strongest when the middle class prospers. By investing in American manufacturers and their products, those companies can return good jobs to the working men and women of the middle class.

    This is a step in the right direction. I would like to see President Trump take it a step further and enhance more of the language that deals with what is considered "American made." Agreements with other nations will require renegotiation.

    Will it raise the cost?

    Cost? It has never concerned me. Quality work and materials justify the cost. Some folks have a problem with it for sure. They want fast and cheap. I personally wouldn't do business with those types. We spend our tax dollars repairing the shoddy work and materials they put forth. I do want President Trump to address the slick language that deals with what is considered "American made" for the federal projects. Quite a bit of room for the usual screw job we have come to know as standard practice with politicians promising the moon.
