I am writing this letter to express my displeasure with the decision by the Federal Trade Commission to change it's rules concerning the made in America label. I feel that it is reprehensible that the F.T.C. would punish the employers who have remained and used American workers exclusively benefiting our work force and our economy. I don't believe that this decision should be allowed to stand and put into law. It's for the Government to stand up on behalf of the American worker and up a stop to jobs leaving this country. We do not need our Government to force the employers who have remained loyal to the American worker to take their work elswhere. I do not believe that the employers who have a substantial amount of their work done elsewhere be allowed to put the same label on their goods that the loyal employers do. The made in made in America label should mean what it always has made in America by Americans, not substantially made in America by some American workers. Thats why the made in America by Americans means so much to the American consumer. Thank you!
Howard W. Henning
