FTC: Made In The USA Comments Concerning Mark Dennison--P894219
May 14, 1997
Made in the USA Policy Comment
Dear Office of the Secretary:
After reviewing the article in the USA Today of May 8, 1997 entitled "Truth in Labeling", I'm appalled that the interest of offshore U.S corporations is taking precedence over the American consumer. The American public needs to be informed of the exact content of the components making up a manufactured good and where these components are manufactured. The American public needs more information on labeling, not less.
There are a vast majority of working Americans that are not as zealous about the "One World Order" and global economy as CEO's who abuse their position and reap the profits thereof. There are international civil right violations occurring in many of these third world countries where the manufactured components are being manufactured. If the Congress of the United States doesn't want to address these issues in denying "Most Favored Trade" status to these abusing countries, possibly the American public will, by realizing where goods are manufactured and refuse to buy the product. More than likely this is why special interest groups are pushing for labeling reform: companies want to keep the U.S. public in the dark so they're unaware of what third world country's labor they're abusing. The power of the dollar and consumer wrath do amazing things to the attitude of a company's policymakers and their profit statement to their stockholders. KEEP LABELS HONEST FOR THE GOOD OF THE AMERICAN CONSUMER.
