LET'S GET BACK TO AUSTRALIAN MADE
Globalisation has meant that Australia has lost all or most of the following industries, automotive manufacture, clothing, footwear, light and heavy manufacturing, steel production, petrol refining, medical PPE and many many more. So which industry is next?
The majority of furniture purchased in Australia is already manufactured overseas and transported here by sea.
Globalisation has seen skills and jobs disappear from our shores. Where are the apprenticeships for young Australians going to come from?
Australian made means we maintain a skilled workforce with jobs for Australians.
Our reliance on overseas manufacture has been fully exposed in recent times with shortages and/or unavailability of vital supplies.
At Proud Furniture everything is manufactured in Sydney. So you can still do your bit for Australian skills and jobs by buying Australian.
Let’s get back to the program.
