Manufacturing Jobs

I often take to task those who promise to bring back manufacturing jobs. My response is that they are either down right lying to get your vote or even worse, they don’t have a clue. Having spent many years in manufacturing, I can talk from experience. Manufacturing jobs as we once knew them, are not coming back. Not only are wages so much lower in third world countries, ¬†automation itself marks the future of manufacturing in this Country. No overtime, no vacations, time off or other benefits to incurr. Besides they can work a 24 shift without overtime and never complain. As a friend of mine always says: “its all about the Benjamin’s.”
