Walmart U.S. CEO promotes Made in the USA initiative

In advance of the Walmart-led U.S. Manufacturing Summit held in Orlando, Walmart U.S. president and CEO Bill Simon wrote an op-ed piece for the Huffington Post titled, "Reviving U.S. Manufacturing Key to Rebuilding the Middle Class." In it, Simon alludes to the vanishing middle class — which found themselves jobless as products once produced in the U.S. were now being outsourced overseas — and how Walmart, the National Retail Federation and the more than 1,500 people representing manufacturers, retailers, the administration and state governments might help rebuild that middle class, revive U.S. manufacturing and make the U.S. the economic powerhouse it once was.
