New skills needed for new manufacturing technology - Brookings Institution
For much of the 20th Century, manufacturing provided stable incomes for many workers with only a high school education. As these jobs have increasingly moved offshore in search of lower-wage labor, a new kind of manufacturing job must take their place. As industry adopts increasingly sophisticated technologies, new manufacturing jobs require more advanced skills than are available at the high school level. The current gap between worker skills and industry needs has resulted in an estimated two million vacant manufacturing jobs in the U.S. Filling these jobs requires new mechanisms for training workers in advanced manufacturing technologies.

How to spread the wealth of California innovations - The Sacramento Bee
Yet, while I was inspired by California’s capacity to create world-altering products and services, I was also disturbed by cities struggling with stalled industrial economies.

Wal-Mart suppliers grapple with ‘Made in USA’ label challenge - Bangor Daily News
Harold Sirkin, a managing director at Boston Consulting Group, said Wal-Mart’s drive to buy American, and similar moves by big importers such as sportswear maker Nike Inc., are, in part, a response to Chinese labor costs that have hit 61 percent of U.S. levels, compared to 17 percent of U.S. levels 15 years ago. When supply chain and transport costs are figured in, American manufacturers can now compete, he said.
