America’s Forbes magazine website recently published an article titled “The End of Chinese Manufacturing and Rebirth of U.S. Industry,” which claims that America will recover its superior position because of its advanced technology manufacturing industry. The article also insinuatingly mocks China for facing a manufacturing industry bubble, pointing the finger of blame at the “made in China” industry. This year, there have been many articles like the one published by Forbes, to the point that individual American representatives have started making a big deal out of nothing, shouting that they want to pile together all products with a “made in China” tag and incinerate them. The government wantonly publicizing the “made in America” industry, not to mention the media following suit in the hype, exactly embodies the communal worry, or even the confusion and lack of confidence, of America toward “made in America.”
For the past two years, the employment section of the American manufacturing industry has ebbed. In addition to reasons like the increased cost of foreign manpower, there are also temporary and chance elements like currency fluctuation and rising prices of transporting energy from abroad. America wants to reverse the economic imbalance and needs to make the best choice in the field of manufacturing. Relying on superior industry — the advanced technology industry — to revitalize the entire manufacturing industry has already become the common consensus among many insightful people.
When all is said and done, the biggest problem the American manufacturing industry is facing is a problem of talent. In the end, this is the true focus of America’s anxiety. The relocation of the American manufacturing industry is not merely due to cheaply priced foreign manpower. Apple executives all recognize that the flexibility, diligence and technical skills of foreign workers all far surpass that of their American counterparts.

Manufacturers in the Chicago area are busier than ever lately, and they're "begging" for more workers trained in advanced manufacturing skills like CNC machining, said Redd. It's not just in Chicago. Factory work has picked up considerably nationwide, making skilled workers a valuable commodity, said Marc Smierciak, associate dean of instruction at the vocational college. "Employers right now need workers with these high-precision skills. But the mismatch is that most of America's unemployed workforce doesn't possess these skills," Smierciak said. So manufacturers are racing to trade schools like Wilbur Wright, one of only seven schools in Illinois that offer an accredited CNC course, and snapping up newly-minted factory workers as quickly as they can. The demand for his graduates is so intense that last year's CNC graduating class scored a 100% job placement. "It's a wonderful accomplishment for us," said Smierciak. It was the first time the school achieved perfect placement in the program's 15-year history. Smierciak expects this year's graduating class to meet with similar success.
