If you aren't finished shopping for Christmas and you want to "shop American", I have found someone to help....
I asked Celeste Drake- a trade expert who works to promote good jobs in the US, if she could give us a list of who to "shop American" for. Celeste will also be joining me on air on Tuesday morning in the 8am hour so she can explain further why "shopping American" helps all of us...
