One response to “US Federal Government Seems a Stronger Employer (and Spender) Than All of Manufacturing”

  1. Job Seeker

    Manufacturing jobs have been declining for several decades now since US companies are looking for cheap labor abroad. So as a result we have turned our economy into a service driven economy. Just go to the store and just about everything is made in Asia and/or Middle East. Even certain companies have outsourced their customer service departments. Although the government is increasing jobs they can’t do it alone, manufacturing companies must their part. Just last year my brother’s employer moved their manufacturing plant to the Vietnam because they were enticed by saving millions on salaries, benefits, and operation costs. Which left him and 500 other people without work.
