Is it really possible to bring back American manufacturing?
You’re not going to convince companies to pay a human to do work that machines can do faster and more accurately.
Not with automation
Only with automation
Yes anything is possible.
Manufacturing depends on two things:
1. A well educated public workforce
2. A low priced labor force
So, no, manufacturing will never return to the glory days in this country.
We priced ourselves out of the market due to wages and management compensation.
As a country, we have moved to more advanced things. There will always be some, but not to where is was due to automation & labor cost.
Surely you can add something besides “no” to the conversation - otherwise go back to your sandbox.
Done call me Shirley
“It not to where is”. What is that . A well thought out statement
Yes, though not to the same extent
Nope. Look at the jobs report. Trump couldn't even do it. Lost some 36,000 jobs in manufacturing last month
Not in the near future, while cheaper foreign labor exists.
Yeah, just require all products sold in America to be fully assembled and made in America
And why not?

Yes but only at pay rates to compete with the third world.
Or the multi-billionaire ceo’s would just have to make do with a smaller private jet
Could we craft trade agreements to strongly encourage better pay for workers in other countries, making American labor more competitive without lowering wages?
Those jobs have been and are still in the process of being converted into robots.
American manufacturing will consist of people who know how to run and build these robots.
But not American manufacturing jobs, unless we get really regressive, really quickly.
No, we shouldn't get really regressive?
