Well, I don't consider it meaningless.
When it's feasible, I will choose to reward a company that keeps jobs
in the US and puts dollars in the pockets of American workers over one
that lays off Americans and exports the jobs to China or wherever to
save a buck (and probably put that buck into the CEO's pocket).
This doesn't mean I'll but a crappy product just because it bears a
Made in America label. But it does mean that I'll try to avoid buying
a foreign-made product just because it's a few dollars cheaper. Now
that I know PC and Makita (both of whom have good reputations for
quality) make their tools in America, I'll tend to favor them over,
say, DeWalt who doesn't. If that means I pay a few dollars more, I
for one am willing to do that.
