Petition:  U.S. Olympic Uniforms Should Be American Made!

The U.S. Olympic Committee has selected Ralph Lauren to supply uniforms for the American Olympic team.  But those uniforms will not be made in America -- they’ll be made in China.  

More than 2.8 million jobs have been shipped to China since 2001. We have lost 6 million manufacturing jobs in the past decade. The failed policies that have encouraged companies like Ralph Lauren to create jobs overseas, not in America, have hurt working families and our communities.

Join us and urge the U.S. Olympic Committee to invest in America by choosing uniforms that are made in America.  Sign the petition!

Noteworthy:

  • A new study highlights the link between high profits and low wages and provides more evidence that the minimum wage should be increased.  Learn more in Bob Lucore's latest blog.
  • Has our nation become too rich and too poor?  While the median income has decreased in the last decade, income of the wealthiest Americans has increased 40%.  Read “Too Rich, Too Poor” by ADA’s intern, Mary Schaefer.
