Factory town no more -
It’s no surprise that the number of people working in manufacturing in Kenosha County has declined since the closing of the Chrysler Assembly Plant in 1988.

Nationally, the manufacturing workforce has declined over the last three decades as some factories moved to lower-cost countries while those production facilities that remained becoming increasingly automated, employing fewer workers.

Why Foxconn Is Considering Engineers From China - Forbes
Some controversy emerged with a report that Foxconn, a Taiwanese company, plans to transfer engineers from China into Wisconsin to staff its large expansion into the state.

Brain Gain: Professionals Find Niche in Rural Upper Midwest - Daily Yonder
Winchester looked at Census data to show that the so-called rural “brain drain” popularized in the 2009 book “Hollowing Out the Middle” is being countered by “brain gain.” Rural communities may be losing high school graduates, but they’re gaining residents with more skills and education, according to studies in Minnesota and Nebraska. In Minnesota, Winchester found that most rural Minnesota counties have gained 30- to 49-year-olds, early- to mid-career Minnesotans with significant resources and connections.

The Tech Skills Gap Will Test Foxconn's New Wisconsin Factory - WIRED
The 3,000 jobs Foxconn says it will create in Wisconsin aren’t the kind of manufacturing jobs that so many laid off auto and steel workers have been clamoring for. Nor are they a pathway to the American-made iPhone President Trump promised during the 2016 election. They are, instead, part of a new generation of advanced manufacturing jobs, requiring high levels of engineering skills—skills that are still sorely lacking in the American workforce.
