-- you look at the number -- the job numbers show what's that waiting for the government to solve the problem leaves us with another quarter of slow growth and -- struggling economy.
So one person who decided not to wait for the government anymore -- ahead of Starbucks he launch what you've probably seen in the stores not -- create jobs for USA program.
And we're just starting to see it work its way down to the street and a tiny little town in Ohio called east Liverpool.
That little town used to call itself a pottery capital of the world until people realized it was cheaper to make things like mugs and plates in China.
However as part of this campaign American mug in Stein was tasked with making the coffee -- -- -- now for sale in Starbucks is part of this program.
This is a pottery company that was looking at the possibility of shutting down.
This order in the promise for continued orders means not only will they preserve jobs -- add eight more.

Tax dollars for another -- off.

Took me go to Starbucks and you buy one of these mugs with that single word indivisible printed on the front.
