Re: [newtech-1] Apple - Made in the USA

The insourcing boom has been seen in manufacturing which requires skilled and intensive labor for manufacturing. I am wondering how the less skilled manufacturing trends will change when innovation such as by Rehtink Robotics (produce robot factory workers for $22,000 a piece) would become successful.
Here is the link which gives the details.

No, I wasn't complaining in my posts about manufacturing being off-shored. I think you read it wrong. 

 I simply pointed out:

1. That Apple is bringing back some manufacturing. 
2. Other companies see value in manufacturing in the US
3. There are plenty of people in the US who would do these jobs. 

So, yes, you did misunderstand.

Fourth, if you want to keep it accurate. Yet I don't think I had any trouble understanding. You're complaining that others make decisions that you don't like as to where to build their factories ("plenty of people who could use the work", which I assume should have been "plenty of American people" for accuracy's sake?). So my rephrased question is are you doing anything to create jobs on shore? It's very easy to say "hey, why doesn't company X create more jobs in Oregon/Michigan/Wherever". It's much harder to go through the trouble and risk to actually do it.

I don't think I asked for either. English is your second language?

Are you opening a factory or just asking others to do so?
