Zinn: Is it even possible to bring manufacturing jobs back to the U.S.?
More than one President has pledged to bring manufacturing jobs back to the U.S. Some may even argue that it’s taking place. But I suspect we’d all agree that the number of jobs created in that space hasn’t lived up to the hype. But the underlying question is, is it even possible to do that? On one hand, there’s automation that’s taking jobs and on the other hand, there’s very cheap labor in other parts of the world that’s taking jobs. So I asked Ray Zinn, who joins we every week, whether he thought it was a topic worth spending time on.
