My answer to How can we bring manufacturing jobs back to America?
Answer by Ken Larson:
“Bringing jobs back to America” is an antiquated phrase.
We must bring America to the jobs and we are doing so with our unmatched technology and internationally wired economy. There simply is no other way forward.
Companies like IBM and GE are camped out in China, relocating high tech and aircraft manufacturing personnel from the US to where the demand is greatest.
Supply and demand has always prevailed throughout human history. America needs to elevate education and industrial cooperative programs to bring our work force up to where the bulk of our labor force can lead the world anywhere in the world.
Asking industry to invest in this concept is a great way to fill open labor requisitions in the top firms with experienced people.
