When was the last time you heard this in an American factory?

"I've been here 26 years in June," Mark Lovell says, leaning toward me as telling a secret, "and I've never seen a layoff, ever."
Lovell is confident that the 70 workers on his production line will always have good-paying jobs, because no one competes with a machine. Whenever a task is automated, the employee who performed it is trained for another one worth equivalent pay....

"The notion of sending your quality, outsourcing your quality halfway around the world," Craigie says, "is unthinkable."

Yeah American workers suck, that's why companies like Zildjian and Costco have almost no employee turnover.

It's not that "American workers suck" it's that American workers are smart enough to know when they are getting screwed. Why do you think education is under attack. Because they want a stupid, docile workforce. As Carlin said, "they want workers smart enough to push the buttons and pull the levers but too stupid to realize they are getting screwed over.
