Biden administration encourages purchase of American-made goods

The federal government spends large amounts of money purchasing new equipment, preparing reserves and standing ready to help the American people. The Biden White House is ensuring these purchases support American workers and American business.

The International Brotherhood of Teamsters are the established professionals when it comes to warehousing and transportation of goods within the U.S. Teamsters Legislative Representative Mike Dolan advocated for an investment of American made goods on the AWF Union Podcast. He also explained how the Biden administration is making the investment happen.

Supporting the American worker

Past presidential administrations have advocated for the American worker, but few have taken concrete action to improve the lives of American workers. The Biden administration is taking meaningful action, according to Dolan.

The Biden administration recently published a proclamation calling the week of July 26 through July 30 Made in America Week. During this week, President Biden encourages all Americans to support American businesses and American workers.

Dolan believes the proclamation and other actions by the Biden administration will benefit American workers and Teamsters members.

The Biden administration has taken other actions to benefit American workers, such as signing an executive order requiring the federal government to purchase American-made goods.

The government is a huge consumer — purchasing products to boost the military, shore up supply stock for global pandemics and other measures of preparedness. Biden’s executive order requires a phasing in of American-made purchases and Dolan hopes this will encourage companies to invest in the American workforce, instead of shipping jobs and supply chains overseas.

The Teamsters have been advocating for an update to the Buy American Act of 1933, and Dolan believes they are close. The actions of the Biden administration showcase a commitment to support American workers.
