Raise your hand if you’re in favor of supporting American jobs? Duh right? Well if you haven’t heard the buzz yet, I’m here to share with you, Walmart’s commitment to invest $250 Billion dollars in products that support American jobs.

We will grow U.S. manufacturing on two fronts. First, by increasing what we already buy here in categories like sporting goods, apparel basics, storage products, games, and paper products.
