ABC News Fills a House with 'Made In America’ Products
As we've previously reported, ABC World News has been spotlighting "Made in America." Their challenge: trying to fill three rooms in a suburban U.S. home entirely with "100 percent American-made products." ABC has pointed out that if every American "spent an extra $3.33 on U.S.-made goods every year, it would create nearly 10,000 new jobs."
Producers for ABC emptied out the living room, kitchen, and bedroom of a Dallas, Texas home belonging to the Usry family. The goal was to fill it back up with American-made products. You can see the results here, and can click on the red diamonds to see items up close and learn more about the products and companies involved.
