Manufacturers look to U.S.

This should help the jobs over the long run. I hope more stuff
does come back, the author is right about the cost of materials and
especially logistics not making it worth it. At my place of work I know that I go out of my way to try to fuel local business rather than ordering from overseas, many times it was cheaper to make it here and ship rather than make over there and pay hundreds to ship. Plus we got a WAY better product.

After "lemming" exodus, manufacturers look to U.S.

My facility makes a lot of parts for GE appliance in Louiville. They're mentioned in the article. GE spent a billion dollars upgrading their facilities and moving manufacturing back to Kentucky from mexico.

I'm glad some of the work is comming back

Just like any politician in office would. And if more jobs went overseas blame would be put on the president. Goes both ways, homie.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Of course it had to turn political, especially since there is a Democratic president in office that is to blame for things going well, wtf?
Anyhow, was not a political article but instead an article showing that in spite of cheap labor overseas it can be less expensive to make it at home, and is better quality when made here, thus creating more jobs here so all Americans regardless of political affiliation can benefit.

its political because obama has made it that way, the article sites GE and Boeing , lets see, obama is best friends with jeff immelt, CEO of GE, who reportedly paid no taxes last year while obama appoints immelt to a position on some jobs council , and Boeing is in a fight with the NLRB over a plant expansion and that could not be more political

its beyond naieve to complain that politics are being brought up in relation to these issues, politics have driven these issues to the point that we are all worried about something that 20-30 yrs ago very few worried about, politics have driven jobs out of this country for decades and i will refuse to ignore that elephant in the room
