Letter to the Editor
We need to bring manufacturing back to the United States. Nike, and many companies, hire a few sales and marketing people in the US, but all their manufacturing takes place in other countries.
One solution is to offer free apprenticeships and career training to high school graduates to train them to run the specialized machinery at today’s manufacturing companies. We can encourage these companies to return their manufacturing to the US by incentivising the tax structure so they pay less taxes for each American they employ.
Citizens need to vote for politicians who recognize our workers are severely underpaid and under-utilized. Not that long ago, we were the best educated country in the world. If you educate and train our youth for free, and pay them well, we will all prosper.
