    Not the most exciting post ever. Another dreary factory. Lots of unsafe working conditions. Etc

      May be dreary but this is what the U.S. needs like “a shot in the arm.” Industry fled (capitalists looking for cheaper workforce) in the 1960s-70s and now we have a “jello” (no backbone) service economy coupled with a Wall Street/”K” Street stuff shirt government. Lose industry=lose your soul.

        Majority of American businesses are small. America is still one of the largest manufacturing economies in the world. Yes service is a very big part of the mix but manufacturing is still huge on a global scale.

  2. Good selection of pictures! Also good that it’s a place that provides so many specialist jobs.
