While we take time to celebrate American labor this Labor Day, Press reporters look at the difficulties of buying American-made products. This is best exemplified by the fact that the top two car models with the highest percentage of American-made parts are the Toyota Matrix and the Toyota Avalon, according to the American Automobile Labeling Act.
