I’m reading another article on reshoring, or bringing manufacturing back to the U.S. This article is particularly interesting because it talks about the possibility that reshoring could create 2 to 3 million new jobs by the end of the decade.
There is a problem, however. It seems there is major concern that the U.S. manufacturers will not be able to handle the load due to a shortage of workers. I find this to be an interesting dilemma. Primarily because of the HUGE number of Americans out of work in today’s economy.
Check out the unemployment statistics that are posted by the United States Department of Labor. The number of unemployed workers continues to increase in some states, while several states are seeing a decrease in the number of unemployed workers.
With the number of displaced workers in the U.S., how about implementing some sort of incentive program for unemployed workers to cross train into the manufacturing industry?
What are your thoughts on the subject?
