This guy’s depressing as a hell:
“From its peak five years ago in 1998, manufacturing employment has plunged 2.1 million, or about 18.3%. This is the single greatest percentage decline in the labor force in almost seven decades since the Great Depression of the 1930s. What has been happening to American manufacturing can only be described with the word ‘depression.'”
I don’t buy it. Or perhaps I don’t want to believe it. Hell, I do not even want to think about it!
