Don't get mad and instantly say no! Think about it first.
Do you shop at Walmart, KMart or Target? Look around you, do you have a lot of "stuff?" Is it stuff that isn't absolutely needed? Do you have more than 1 pair of flip flops? Do your kids wear licensed type merchandise? How often do you shop at a "dollar" type store?
How high is your personal demand for low cost goods? The demand for low cost goods is one of the reasons jobs go overseas. American business owners cannot compete with wages paid in places like China, Indonesia and Thailand. The average Chinese worker makes $120 (US dollars) a month...that buys about 14 hours of minimum wage here in Oregon.
What can we each do to help lower this demand and encourage American made products?

thats not the reason, the reason is because the tax braeks companies get to send the jobs overseas.
It has been in practice since before 1961. http://www.usatoday.com/money/perfi/taxes/2008-03-20-corporate-tax-offshoring_N.htm
If you are looking for jobs, look elsewhere. the jobs have gone green. if you need help finding them contact me.

I actually do try to buy local (Canadian, not American), but dang it can be hard sometimes. I often can't find something locally. But I admit guilt to shopping at Walmart type stores occasionally too.
