Well, actually those sites aren't specific as to the subject, but other than the first one they all mention Lincoln plants staying here even before the trump call. They are still planning on moving small car production out of this country. It does seem to be just a publicity stunt.

Just saying. They have invested a ton of money and the plant was always going to stay.

This situation is a huge mess. The only thing I can see working is to lower corporate taxes but they have to paid for by balancing out the budget. The 43 billion a year in subsidies for oil and gas may be a good start.

To seriously fix anything you have to spur investment when new companies come in they want a skilled labour force that is education and job training.

You can't simply wave your hands around and stop a massive global economy led by the us. Baby steps. Mostly in Congress.

The companies used to train employees, schooling for those jobs is not necessary most times. It only takes about a month or two on the job to learn the ropes. The training in school is a waste of times most times except maybe some of the specialist training centers, college is not needed for most factory jobs. But the people in education want us to think that it is necessary, they want their paychecks.

Our countries way out of whack with it's present beliefs. I would have not hired a person who went to college in building trades when I had my company running. I had a few people that did and their idea of how to build was not my quality, they went by industry standards and those minimums were not even in my vocabulary. I liked to build things overbuilt and I liked to use materials that I knew personally were of good quality, I did not accept some of the certifications as being evidence of good quality. So I had problems with a few people I worked with, they bought into some knowledge that was not acceptable to me.

I trained my guys to work, from experience I knew that hiring someone with a degree would just mess things up, they seem to think they know everything. Put it this way, I worked for one guy who taught this stuff, he hired me because of my reputation and was amazed at how much I knew. My knowledge of things usually blows away what is taught in school because I know many professions. I wasn't going to buck heads with someone coming out of college. If I owned a factory I would never hire a person with a degree except to maybe do a few specialized jobs.

Same here, the company hired a guy out of college that knew what he was doing. But, when he had an aluminum extruded conveyor motor/gearbox that needed to be TS&R'd (very simple) he froze up and stared at it for 1/2 the day. When the other mechanics noticed and started to rag on him, he didn't know how to deal with that either. All he had to do was ask for help, but he relied on college, and it didn't cover simple conveyors or how to tell us chumps off.
