Apple's new campus might be in Raleigh, North Carolina — Quartz
Apple is coming to The Triangle.

Local news station WRAL reported May 16 that Apple is set to open its second headquarters in Raleigh, North Carolina. The company announced in January that it planned to establish a second headquarters, away from its Cupertino, California, base, employing up to an additional 10,000 people wherever it chose to plant roots. Unlike Amazon, which last year launched a very public competition among cities to win its HQ2, Apple has conducted its business in private, as it tends to do. “We’re not doing a beauty-contest kind of thing,” CEO Tim Cook recently told Recode’s Kara Swisher.

Helping U.S. Manufacturers: What works? - Agracel, Inc.
One of the chasms in today’s political economy relates to manufacturing. Broadly speaking, many elites believe that the one-two punch of globalization (trade) and technology (robotics) has effectively knocked out the sector. But many people disagree. Or, more precisely, they believe that with the right policies, we could support more factory jobs in more places than we do now.

Small Nevada businesses struggle to find qualified candidates – Las Vegas Review-Journal
High and many other small-business owners in Nevada have hit a wall finding employees with the right skill sets. A 2018 survey by Nevada State Bank and Applied Analysis found more than two-thirds of businesses find it somewhat or very difficult to recruit qualified candidates. The state’s education system and a lack of economic diversification may be at fault, experts say.

The Factory That Oreos Built - Smithsonian
If walls could speak, the brick at New York’s Chelsea Market would have more than a few stories to tell.

Alphabet (the parent company of Google) purchased the building in March of 2018 for $2.4 billion—an earth-shattering figure even in New York City’s real estate market—but this isn’t a glittering, 21st-century beacon, a symbol of the ingenuity of Silicon Valley. In reality, the looming brick structure remains largely the same as it did more than a century ago, when it served as headquarters for the iconic snack company Nabisco.

Machining Demand Surges With Boom in U.S. Manufacturing - Thomasnet
This trend correlates with a booming resurgence in U.S. manufacturing, which added 24,000 jobs in April alone according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). However, these strong employment numbers somewhat mask a significant challenge for the precision machining industry – that challenge being the shortage of skilled workers in the trade. In fact, the Bureau predicts that there will be a need for an additional 29,000 new machinists by 2024.
