NPR Planet Money Correspondent Adam Davidson tackled the issue of manufacturing in the United States by examining the history of manufacturing in one town-Greenvile County, South Carolina. Greenvile used to be a textile manufacturing town where communities were defined by what factory you worked for. The jobs were great for people with little education. It was common for people to drop out of high school in order to start work. Manufacturing jobs in the United States was always a great option for people who might be unable or unwilling to go to college and get a law or business degree. Manufacturing gave a certain sect of the American population a chance at the American Dream. Over the years, as textile manufacturing jobs continued to be outsourced overseas, the factories began to close.
Easier to work with. Robotic automation is much easier to work with than humans. Robots don’t require coaching or ongoing training. Once one Robot is trained to do the work, all other robots immediately learn the same things. Robots don’t require the same supervision as humans and can work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, without a break.
