  • Carl,could it be that no one wants to work these jobs,lawsuits, lack of skilled workers,profits not there?As a Mgr at a bar it's amazing how many people don't want to work or feel certain jobs are below them.If one looks at WW2 manufacturing stats,our country produced quite a bit of materials.It's mind blowing and several factories started from scratch. How people know that interchangeable parts came about because of the militaries need for weapons that were easier to maintain? I try to buy Made in USA but it's very hard to do nowadays.

  • I believe Tyson and Walmart distribution center are the number one employers in the county.8% nationwide is not very good. I believe the cost,training, and taxes hurt manufacturing in our country.
