My brother send me an article by time magazine about the comeback that American manufacturing is making! It's great! Did you know that Ashley Furniture is investing $80 million into a plant in North Carolina? I didn't! I think that's awesome!
Another note is that many factory jobs in the USA will require a 2 year degree to handle the machinery. I think that's silly. I think there should be on the job training so that people don't need to rack up thousands of dollars in student loans in order to work in a factory.
Anywho, it's a great and inspiring article! Here's the link: http://business.time.com/made-in-the-u-s-a/?iid=biz-article-moreontime
Hello! I'm a 30 year old gal with a liking for doing year long projects. I've done a year without any form of chocolate, a year without coffee shops, and 5 years without gum (and I LOVE chocolate, coffee shops, and gum)! A year wearing only American Made should be the hardest yet, though*.
