Remember now, worldwide inflation will always be an American Democrat's fault no matter where it happens. Because yes, they are that stupid.

I'm sure this will make the coal miners in W Virginia happy.

Just in time for the trade deal he just signed to send them to the Pacific.

Manufacturing is very bad for the environment.

So, TFG was right about a trade war being good for the U.S?!

I've worked on a printshop during my semi retirement. Bindery sorta sucked but moving input materials into shipped product has a satisfactory feeling to it.

There's two types of manufacturing. The jobs that should be done by robots, and the ones that require human attention. It's amazing how many robot jobs are still done by humans.

We are in a recession. 2 quarters of consecutive and negative GDP growth is the definition. Where the dumbasses and partisan assholes are wrong is the assumption that recessions must impact labor. This one is exclusively hitting capital, which is the crime of the millennium to a class of people used to collective dick sucking and a decade of free money. F*** 'em. They can stop eating so much avocado toast and get a real job if they want money.

They'll cool off after the grace period is over and the companies start forcing them to work 56-60 hour weeks...

No. Not possible.
No fit with narrative.

I've spent my entire professional career in manufacturing. First in textiles and now in food/pharmaceutical ingredients. I can corroborate the article on manufacturing jobs booming, we've added ~70 headcount since July of last year. That's just the folks on the factory floor, not counting additions in engineering and logistics and other white collar jobs.

Not surprising.  Back when oil was approaching $190/bbl, the cost of shipping rose high enough that there was a lot of talk of bringing manufacturing back to North America.  Then the price of oil tanked and those plans were shelved.

I've sometimes wondered how disruptive a world-wide ban on residual fuel oils (bunker oil) and blends would have on global shipping and how it would affect international manufacturing.  #4 intermediate fuel oil currently sells for $765 per metric ton while #2 marine gasoil currently sells for $1427 per metric ton.  Could be that what's good for the environment could also be good for the economy.

Pharma mfg here, can confirm, were adding about 200k ft² of mfg space and hiring ~175 additional permanent headcount, plus employing a, ohhhhhh whatstheterm . . . buttload-that's it, of construction workers, Civ. E.s, construction managers, project managers, and various and sundry validation contractors. The median wage for the permanent hires is ~$30/hour, ranging from $22.50 to in the $40s/hour for really highly skilled folks.
