We post a lot about outsourcing to India, etc. of IT jobs and what not. Well, a reality check, most of the jobs lost during this recession & jobless recovery were in manufactoring. An article in THE NY TIMES highlights the problem. What do you do with a 55 year old steel worker who can't find work because the jobs aren't there? Re-train them to be a programmer??? Things that make you go hmmm....
