Trump tax cuts bring "advanced manufacturing" jobs back to America

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, I reported on Apple's announcement that their investing $30 billion in capital spending in the U.S. creating more than 20,000 jobs.

This is further proof of the positive impact Trump's economic policies are having on American workers:

His recently passed tax reform bill has made America competitive again and enabled job creators to hire.

The jobs included in Apple's expansion are in "advanced manufacturing," the very jobs Trump vowed to bring back to America. It's why blue-collar workers in the rust belt abandoned the Democrats in the last Presidential election.

I'm a conservative, so you know I support tax cuts. But even Apples left-wing CEO admits their investment in America wouldn't be as large without Trump's tax reform.

And the steady rise of the American stock markets in the past 12 months is what!?! – “An Inconvenient Fantasy”???… I suspect that even mass hypocrite’s Al Gore’s stocks are rising…

Andrew Apples CEO says the tax reform was a factor, but of course you said it wasn’t , you must know better i guess!

Dale Warren Andrew says that is meaningless and Canada is doing better LMAO!

Bruce Atchison people on the left are too good to do anything other than what they deem themselves worthy of, assuming they actually work in the first place.

A lot of people are going to be forced off their couches and into the work force. Not everyone will be happy. Should be fun to watch. We don’t have to worry about such a thing in Canada. Couch potatoes are quite safe here, especially if you are a minority, of the traditional and or the new snowflake flavour. Justin loves his nanny state. No need for training people for what the market needs in this country. There is no market.

Is there really a problem with the skills gap in regards tobusinesses coming back to America? Leftists keep hyping retraining to get new skills. Why can’t coal miners become geologists? Why can’t delivery people get jobs providing transport for these high-wage folks? Why can’t able-bodied people find even unskilled labour now that more folks are hiring? Clearly, this is the era in America of new opportunities. In just a year, their economy has roared to life after sputtering along for eight miserable years. As my grandfather used to say, “Throw your eyes around.” Stop moaning about the past and get on with building your future, Americans.

“Advanced manufacturing” has been returning in droves to the US since at least 2012. The problem is, they’re highly skilled jobs that the blue collar base largely isn’t qualified for… which is to say that they’re jobs suitable for people that already had no problems finding jobs, not the unskilled labour that say an unemployed coal miner can easily switch into.

in fact, the rise of “advanced manufacturing” has been a bigger factor in unskilled job losses than outsourcing has been, unskilled labour being replaced by robots and the skilled tradesmen that operate them, for at least five years.

It’s wonderful that there are jobs being created for qualified individuals, but it doesn’t help the skills gap, or the blue collar base that supported Trump.
