As the song goes, “they come from the cities and they come from the smaller towns…” purchasing items made in America is the new conscionable trend going around especially in the hotel industry. It was not too long ago that many manufacturing goods including the ones you sleep on were made in China or Mexico as well as many other lodging items. Corporations caught on quick that customers wanted low prices for their goods, and sustaining higher wages while producing low price merchandise was not viable. For cheaper labor, industrial plants moved overseas to produce items that were once American made goods.
There has been a greater push from guests to buy local in recent years. In response there has been a larger influx of companies moving back to the US to do just that.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there was about a 25,000 job increase in the manufacturing sector in the US in 2017 alone. The spike in job creations in this field signifies that US based companies are coming back to establish their production in the homeland more than in previous years.
Of course, the problem of higher prices for hotel items remains. One of the factors for the change in venue for these industries is because countries such as China are beginning to raise their wages. The modification of employee wages abroad coupled with the growing number of support to bring manufacturing jobs back home, have many companies changing tactics. Technology is also another factor for the return of US companies to the motherland, as automated robots can produce the labor that was once conducted by humans. Statistics also show that the general public is willing to pay higher prices for fair labor practices and quality products.
