America’s Biggest Missed Opportunity? (

Seattle-based blog, Simply American, speaks on the positive economic potential of manufacturing in the USA.

manufacturers in Indianain New York, in California and in many other states can’t find the people they need to hire to ramp up production of their goods.  While we have added nearly 500,000 manufacturing jobs over the last two years, a study published last year by Deloitte estimated that approximately 600,000 well-paying manufacturing jobs are going wanting in our country simply because of a lack of workers with the requisite skills to fill the positions. 

Production always begins with education, skills, and resources; and as Mayor Julian Castro recently remarked “you can’t be pro-business unless you’re pro-education.”
