sjf911 hit the nail on the head. The powers at be do not want this nation to manufacture. They want you to stay in school for 20 years and intern and then work for the government. Get paid with grant money to study fruit flies and maggots (with a $180K a year paycheck) >the same person tells you that the "government agency forgave your school loan's as a signing bonus!!

I feel sorry for all the students that are in the engineering programs, there won't be anything to engineer.. You better pack your bags, and learn another language.. Because you will be moving across the globe to put your degree to work.

Everything is shipped offshore. From phone centers to raw material production. If the US had to supply a manufacturing revolution we only have 3 weeks of steel sitting. How many foundry and smelters do we have "ready" to recycle all the "cash for junkers" All that scrap steel is overseas right now..

Switzer the old BorgWarner and Garrett did NOT have Union workers. The top wages at Pre "911" was $13.XX for a CNC operation person. The Aerospace "westcoast" person was at $28.XX an hour. Assembly folks were paid less. It's a SHAME, these companies want to ring out the labor cost. When Garrett shipped the manufacturing across the border. I "seen" first hand friends stepping in to set up the assy lines, balancing stations. At that time people were laughing there $sses off>seeing bent tailshafts getting balanced in cartridges. Thousands of dollars of machined parts getting scrapped. The joke was on us.. All the US employees that went to help set the lines up were eventually in the unemployment line.

To be fair, it's not just Garrett.. It is every major company. The "blue" collar US worker is a thing of the past, like the corner "full service gas station".
