WHAT: "I Make America" is a national grassroots effort to dramatically strengthen American manufacturing jobs right here in the U.S. to improve our economy and our country's global competitiveness. Every day America's manufacturing base – the backbone of a strong economy – keeps shrinking. Over the past 10 years, manufacturing in the U.S. has shed 5.5 million jobs, and unemployment in the manufacturing sector remains notably higher than the national average.
