Your not alone

but let me take exception to the government not creating jobs. If it were not for various forms of government related jobs we would really be in the pickle barrel. Manufacturing, we gave that farm away many years ago. We not only let it go here in NC we sold the equiptment, the technology, the services every thing but the kitchen sink. I spent many years with the worlds largest textile firm, Burlington Industries, I watched it go from thousands of employees down to one of my friends who wrote his own last check as the final employee of the company. I feel your pain. Manufacturing as we remember it was lots of minium skill jobs with lower pay scale. Today our work force demands much higher pay so many of our jobs go by way of robotics in manufacturing. When our minimum skill manufacturing jobs were eliminated so many of our workers went to construction, and construction related services. As the construction market continued to grow we didnt feel the job losses so badley. Now with no construction we realize how vital manufacturing was in NC. NC seems to be atractive to the aeronautics industry and as you may know we just blew 1,500 jobs to SC in automotive tire manufacturing. I really believe we need our construction business back asap.
