"It used to be Made in America" is a poem about the loss of jobs and the consequences of the outsourcing of jobs and manufacturing to other countries. It's a business story, a social story, a national story and a local story.

SAN MATEO, Calif. - Californer -- During National Small Business Week (May 2-May 8, 2021), and during every week of the year, be sure to take a look at a poem called "It used to be Made in America."

The poem is about the loss of jobs and the consequences of the outsourcing of jobs and manufacturing to other countries.

You can see the poem online at www.itusedtobemadeinamerica.com and also at

The poem was written by Robert Barrows, President of an advertising agency called R.M. Barrows Advertising & Public Relations in San Mateo, California.

It's a poem that every businessperson should read, every politician should read, and every American should read because we all have a stake in it."

Here are a few of the verses of the poem.

The first verse goes like this:

It used to be made in America

It used to be made in my town

It used to be made just down the street

Now they've shut that factory down

Two other verses of the poem go like this:

The deals overseas are way too tempting

The savings are way too dear

But the real cost we pay is far greater

It's a cost we pay for in fear

It used to be made in America

In the good old U.S. of A

But when it takes so many jobs away

It's a price I'm not willing to pay

SO...WHAT IS THE STATE OF JOBS AND THE STATE OF MANUFACTURING IN AMERICA YOUR AREA?

Is manufacturing in your area increasing or is it declining in your area?

*How many manufacturing jobs have been lost?

*How many factories have closed down?

*How many jobs have been outsourced to other countries?

*What are the human and economic consequences of all that outsourcing? What can be done about it? How can America bring those jobs back?

*Is the situation getting a little better, a lot better? Is the situation getting worse, or not moving much at all?

If there have been a lot of job losses due to outsourcing, what are the human and economic consequences of all that outsourcing? What can be done about it? How can America bring those jobs back?

These are the themes that run through the poem "It Used to be Made in America."
