Connecting Public Transit to Great Manufacturing Jobs
By alternately pressuring and working with transportation authorities in Los Angeles, New York, and other cities, Jobs to Move America has gotten foreign manufacturers to create more than 2,500 direct factory jobs in the United States—and several thousand more indirect jobs.

Massachusetts stole a second straight victory in Bloomberg’s ranking of the most innovative U.S. states, a testament to how much the economy’s wheels are greased by investment in higher education and research.

Massachusetts has a number of innovative manufacturers that have made the often-challenging decision to keep their labor force in the United States. The success of these companies demonstrates that it can be done, but we need to pursue policies that support their efforts. One such policy is the “Berry Amendment,” which states that when our military has an opportunity to buy American, US soldiers should train and operate with American-made uniforms and equipment.

Boston Was An Economic Mess. Now, It’s A Booming City. What Happened? - Radio Boston
Sixty years ago, Boston was a basket case, facing a bleak economic future. After peaking in the 1950s, the city’s population collapsed. It was an almost catastrophic exodus, as 30 percent of its residents — wage-earners and tax payers — left, many of them to the suburbs.

Jump forward to today, and it’s a dramatically different story: Boston in 2015 has the highest concentration of startup companies in America, it’s at the center of the global biotech industry and it’s home to a booming tourist trade and a red hot real estate market.

Four years after moving manufacturing to India in 2008, Cambridge robotics maker Energid Technologies Corp. brought production and a handful of jobs back to Massachusetts, squeezed by rising tariffs on parts imported to its Bangalore factory and frustrated by the unpredictable Indian bureaucracy and difficulties shipping its industrial robots to US markets.

Today, with robotics sales climbing, the company plans to ramp up production. But rather than looking to China, which conventional thinking would suggest, Energid is strongly considering expanding at its facility in Burlington.

Strengthening the Innovation Ecosystem for Advanced Manufacturing - MIT Industrial Performance Center
Recent years have brought a renewed focus on the importance of manufacturing to the health and future
growth of the U.S. economy. Specifically, several studies have highlighted the need to maintain and build
manufacturing capabilities to support economic growth, good jobs, and national security. Most critically
perhaps, they have linked America’s strength in manufacturing to its ability to innovate.
Advanced manufacturing capabilities are essential to develop new products and processes across a range
of industries, both established and emerging. As others have pointed out, the loss of this capability can
shift an industry’s center of gravity as higher value-added activities follow manufacturing abroad.
