I’m proud to be one of the 1.3 million men and women in the equipment manufacturing industry. At Fecon, we build quality equipment that helps a variety of industries keep the U.S. economy strong.
I’ve always been curious about how decisions in Washington, D.C. impact my job and the jobs of my colleagues here in Ohio. That’s why I was excited to participate in a recent visit by I Make America, the national grassroots advocacy campaign working to make sure our elected officials support pro-manufacturing policies that benefit us.
Fecon was a stop on a recent I Make America’s Pancakes & Policy tour. It was during I Make America’s recent visit to Fecon that I had the chance to learn more about the campaign and all they ways it helps amplify voices like mine. I learned that not only is I Make America helping to inform workers like me, providing updates on the trade war or what’s going on with much-needed infrastructure legislation, I Make America is making it easier for me to communicate with my elected officials too. It was a great reminder that our stories matter, from the halls of Congress to the Oval Office in the White House.
After learning more about all the campaign does, it feels good to know there are folks watching out for us and fighting on our behalf.
I Make America is doing great work, but it’s only because of voices like ours that the campaign resonates with our nation’s elected leaders. Whether if it’s to tell my elected officials that we need to remove costly tariffs, or if it’s to urge them to ratify the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), I Make America provides the tools for us to reach out to our representatives, senators, and even the White House.
