Is anything really “Made in the USA” anymore?

Yes, actually. Quite a lot is. American manufacturing has enjoyed a resurgence since the Great Recession of 2008, and there are as many manufacturing jobs in the U.S. as there were in the post-WWII days of 1949.

Some companies even are returning their manufacturing to America, although manufacturing workers today make up a much smaller proportion of the workforce than in 1949.

There is no getting around the fact that manufacturing typically is cheaper overseas, where workers often are paid less. Many products thought of as iconic “Americana” no longer are made in the U.S. Following are some everyday favorites that are made overseas.
