This article should make anyone think twice about the myth that America doesn’t “make” anything anymore.

The money quote:

The nation has shed 5 million manufacturing jobs in three decades, but higher-skill factory jobs, like Starr’s goal, increasingly go unfilled as employers deal with applicants with poor reading and math abilities and a bad attitude about blue-collar work.

The problem is not the lack of good manufacturing jobs, but the lack of good employees.
