Over the past few weeks, there’s been quite a bit of excitement around our “I Am a Factory” commercial, which was shot in real factories with real factory employees. It features narration from Mike Rowe, the host of Dirty Jobs.
“I Am a Factory” highlights our commitment to the revitalization of America’s manufacturing industry and underscores our promise that, over the next 10 years, we’ll invest $250 billion more in products that support American manufacturing. It’s spurred plenty of conversation about how we continue to invest in American jobs – and we hope this renewed interest in driving economic growth in the U.S. will inspire others to think about what they can do to make things here again. That includes our current suppliers, new suppliers, factories with capacity around the country and others retailers.
Mike is passionate about creating manufacturing jobs in the United States, and so are we. His recent interviews at CNN and Fox News offer a refreshing take on the task that’s in front of us, and we’re glad to count him as a partner in getting America back to work. Because work is a beautiful thing.
