Unreal.“Made in the USA” labels may be disappearing more quickly than most consumers realize. As if buying American made goods was not difficult enough, shoppers may soon not even be able to determine where a prospective purchase is manufactured. The World Trade Organization (WTO) is pushing for an elimination of country-of-origin labels on all consumer products, the World News Daily (WND) reports. The organization wants to replace the current labeling policy of identifying the nation where items are manufactured with a “Made in the World” tag.
Such a tag would alert consumers that the pretty pink sweater which caught their eye while window shopping was not made on Mars; but would inhibit the ability of those who make an effort to support American workers when visiting the local mall. The misguided WTO plan was initiated to “re-engineer global governance and reduce opposition to free trade,” the WND reports.
