I've just watched a report on the NBC Nightly News (10/29 @ 6:30pm EDT), wherein it was revealed that the Girl Scouts of America is considering switching the purchase of their uniforms from a company in New Jersey to a company in China.
I am outraged by this, and you should be, too. ...The Girl Scouts of America, buying their uniforms from China? Is this a joke? What are they teaching our young ladies about economics? If we allow this to happen, we are, quite literally training the next generation of career Wal-Mart greeters.
I have sent the following e-mail to the Girl Scouts via their web page e-mail submission form (http://www.girlscouts.org/contact/email.asp). I encourage all of you to send a similar e-mail.
I am very distressed by a report I just watched on NBC Nightly News: There is a possibility that The Girl Scouts will stop buying uniforms from an American Company, and switch to a Chinese supplier.
Please know that, if The Girl Scouts choose to go ahead with this action, I will never buy Girl Scout cookies again.
Additionally, I am posting this information on several blogs tonight, and am hopeful that others will follow my lead, in support of American workers.
I am also hopeful that The Girl Scouts will reconsider this proposed change, and do what's right for the American worker, making a boycott unnecessary.
