Throughout the dismal presidential campaign, the plight of America's manufacturing sector played a central role. Yet despite all the concerns raised about factory jobs leaving the country, all but 18 of the country's 70 largest metropolitan regions have seen an uptick in industrial employment since 2011. And despite the slowdown in car sales, the job count continues to expand, albeit more slowly.
Just a few years ago, the prevailing strategy in labor-dependent industries was to move production offshore. Cheap overseas labor increased the competitiveness and profitability of a typical manufacturing business. But that strategy is becoming harder to justify. As automated machinery takes the place of human workers, the cost benefits of offshore production are diminishing quickly.
Alaska has become a testing ground for sustainable technologies that the rest of the world is increasingly interested in using, officials said. U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski held a field hearing this past weekend of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee in Cordova to talk about the state's technology, specifically microgrids, Alaska's Energy Desk reported.
The only constant in life is change. Those words, or similar ones, are most frequently attributed to Heraclitus, an ancient Greek philosopher who very likely wasn't looking at a factory floor when he made this observation. Nevertheless, it is a fitting comment on the state of manufacturing. Successful manufacturing enterprises don't stand still. By definition, neither do their production floors.
