Rather than argue about workers’ lack of skills versus offshoring work to countries with lower skill sets, wouldn’t it be simpler to expect employers to do something that they used to do? Like train workers?

The numbers are outrageous, sickening even. How can anyone stand to look at them?
Since 2000, the U.S. has lost 5.5 million manufacturing jobs, with 2.1 million of those jobs being lost in the last two years alone. Since 2001, over 42,400 factories have closed in the U.S., and another 90,000 are considered at severe risk of closing. The last time so few were employed in manufacturing was in 1941, before World War II spending pulled that sector out of its Great Depression slump.
Numbers like these make me want to cry.
So President Obama has come up with a big and bold solution to deal with problem. He’s going to shut down the federal office that counts how many jobs are being shipped overseas.

College used to mean a good paying job and a future. Now it means a mess, indebtedness, no job and competing with people with NO education for jobs at the bottom of the barrel while employers move educated jobs overseas. Is there an answer?
