FTC: Made In The USA Comments Concerning Ariel W. (Bill) Wadley--P894219
7 May 1997
To: Secretary FTC
The latest proposition by the FTC is a move to allow deception. Although he proposal does not cover automobiles, wool, fur or textiles are aware these products have already been infiltrated and beachheads firmly established.
If Made in the USA' becomes a cover for a high percentage of foreign composition then a witch hunt could ensue. Those who look for the label that says, 'we kept jobs for our own', becomes a mockery.
When our standard of living descends to third world status we can thank those industrialist's whose neighborly love was monetarily motivated.
If 'Made in the USA' refers only to the label, and even that becomes dubious, we can console ourselves with one absolute. I for one will rest assured the witches broom was, Made in China'.
Ariel W. (Bill) Wadley
