I hurried into the local 70-483 pdf department 70-483 pdf store to grab1 Studyguidedump some last minute 70-532 Certification Chirsmas gifts. I looked at 70-532 Certification all Studyguidedump the people and grumbled2 to myself. I ADM-201 dumps would be in here forever and I just 300-135 tshoot pdf had so much to do. Chirsmas was beginning to become such a drag. I kinda wished that I could 70-532 Certification just sleep 70-532 Certification through Chirsmas. But I hurried the best 70-483 pdf I could through all the people to the toy department. Once again I kind of mumbled3 to 70-486 pdf myself at the prices of all ADM-201 dumps these toys, and Lastestexam wondered if the grandkids would even play whit4 them. I found myself Lastestexam in the doll aisle5. Out of the corner of my eye I saw 70-483 pdf a little boy about 5 holding a lovely doll.He kept 300-135 tshoot pdf touching6 her hair 70-483 pdf and he Lastestexam 70-486 pdf held her 300-135 tshoot pdf so gently. I could not 70-486 pdf seem 70-532 Certification to help 70-483 pdf myself. I just kept 70-483 pdf loking over at the little boy and wondered who the doll 70-483 pdf was for. I watched 70-532 Certification him turn Studyguidedump to a woman and he called his aunt by name and said, Studyguidedump “Are Studyguidedump you sure I don’t have enough money?” She replied a bit 70-532 Certification impatiently, “You know Studyguidedump that you don’t have enough money for it.” The aunt told the little boy not to go anywhere that she had to go and get some other things and would be 70-483 pdf back in a few minutes. And Lastestexam then 300-135 tshoot pdf she left the aisle. The boy continued to hold 70-486 pdf the doll. After 70-532 Certification a bit I asked 300-135 tshoot pdf the boy who the doll was for. He said, “It is Lastestexam the doll my sister wanted so badly for 70-486 pdf Chirsmas. She just knew that Santa would bring it. 300-135 tshoot pdf “I told him that maybe Santa was going to bring 300-135 tshoot pdf it . He said, “No, Santa can’t go Lastestexam where my ADM-201 dumps sister is…. I have to give the doll to my Mama to Studyguidedump take to her. 300-135 tshoot pdf “I asked him where his siter was. He looked at me with the saddest eyes and said, “She was Lastestexam gone to be with Jesus.

My Daddy says that Mamma 300-135 tshoot pdf is going to have to 70-483 pdf ADM-201 dumps go be with Studyguidedump her.” My heart nearly stopped Studyguidedump beating. Then the boy looked Lastestexam at me again and said, “I told my Daddy to tell my Mama not Studyguidedump to go yet. I told him to tell her to wait till I got back from the store.” Then he asked me if i wanted to see his picture. I told him I’d love to. He Lastestexam ADM-201 dumps 300-135 tshoot pdf pulled out some Lastestexam picture ADM-201 dumps he’d had taken ADM-201 dumps at the Studyguidedump front 70-532 Certification ADM-201 dumps of the store. He said, “I want my Mama to take this with her so the dosen’t ever forget me. I 70-532 Certification love my Mama so very much and I wish she dind not have to leave me.But Daddy says she will need to be with my sister.” I saw 70-486 pdf 300-135 tshoot pdf that the little boy had lowered his head and had grown so qiuet. While he was not ADM-201 dumps looking Studyguidedump I ADM-201 dumps reached into my purse and pilled out a Lastestexam handful of bills. I asked the 70-483 pdf little ADM-201 dumps boy, “Shall we count that miney one more time?” He grew 70-486 pdf excited and said, “Yes,I just know it has to be enough.” So I slipped my ADM-201 dumps money in Studyguidedump with his and we began to count it . Of course it was Lastestexam plenty for the doll. He softly said, “Thank 70-486 pdf you 70-532 Certification Jesus Lastestexam for giving me enough money.” Then the Studyguidedump 70-483 pdf boy said, “I just asked Jesus to give me enough money to buy this doll so Mama can take 70-532 Certification 300-135 tshoot pdf it with her to give my sister. And he heard my prayer.

She loves white rose 70-483 pdf so much. “In 70-486 pdf a few Lastestexam minutes the aunt came back and I wheeled my cart Lastestexam away. I could not keep Studyguidedump from 300-135 tshoot pdf thinking about the little boy as I finished 70-532 Certification my shoppong in 70-486 pdf a ttally different spirit than when I had started. And I kept remembering a ADM-201 dumps story I had seen ADM-201 dumps in 70-483 pdf the newspaper several days earlier 300-135 tshoot pdf about a drunk driver hitting Studyguidedump a 70-532 Certification car and 70-532 Certification killing7 a little 70-486 pdf girl and the Mother was in serious condition. The family was deciding 70-532 Certification on 70-486 pdf whether to remove the life support. Now surely this little boy did not 70-486 pdf belong with that story.Two days later I read in the paper where the family had disconnected the life support 70-483 pdf and the young woman had died. I could not forget the little boy and just kept Lastestexam wondering if the two were somehow connected. Later that day, I could 70-486 pdf not help myself and I went out and bought aome white 70-486 pdf ADM-201 dumps roses 300-135 tshoot pdf and took them to the funeral home where the yough woman was .And there she was holding a lovely white rose, the beautiful doll, and the picture of the little boy in the store. I left there in tears, thier life changed forever. The love 70-483 pdf that little boy had for his little sisiter and his mother was overwhel. And in a split8 second a drunk driver had ripped9 the life of that little boy to pieces.

Manufacturing jobs are decreasing due to technology and offshoring.  According to CNNMoney, in 1960, one in four Americans was employed in the manufacturing industry.  Today, fewer than one in ten works in a factory.

Offshoring’s Effects

Offshoring took away many manufacturing jobs since it started in the late 1970s.  Many companies moved their manufacturing plants overseas due to attractive labor costs and less stringent regulations.  At first, plants moved to Mexico.  Today, the field has expanded to Asia, South America and other areas.

Offshoring, though, created problems.  Shipping delays, quality problems, and miscommunications occur frequently.  Yet, American companies are willing to deal with these issues in exchange for lower costs.

Plants which moved overseas are starting to return.  The Reshoring Initiative works to bring back good, well-paying manufacturing jobs.  It reported about 60% of reshored jobs came from China because labor costs in China rose. Wages in other once low-cost countries are also increasing.  Automation eliminates the need for unskilled jobs and increases the need for highly-skilled, educated workers.  These higher-level skills often don’t exist in these offshore, third-world countries.

Technology’s Effects

Robotics are increasingly incorporated into manufacturing.  According to the Robotics Industry Association, North American companies spent 32% more on robots in the first quarter of 2017 than the same period last year.  Robots have led to an increase in production in the US, yet they have eliminated many manufacturing jobs.

In 1980, it required 25 semi-skilled employees to generate $1 million in manufacturing output. Today, it takes just 5 highly-skilled workers.  President Trump is working to bring back millions of manufacturing jobs.  Many industry experts believe this goal is difficult.  They claim robotics has eliminated more jobs than offshoring.

Holding a semi-skilled manufacturing background is not sufficient today.  Workers must be skilled in computer operations.  Universities are restructuring their curricula by implementing a STEM education – science, technology, engineering, and math.

While technology eliminated many jobs, it has positive effects on the jobs that remain.  Workers today are better educated, make better products, and, as a result, are better paid.  According to the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, average hourly manufacturing wages as adjusted for inflation increased from $23.23 in June 2010 to $26.51 in June 2017.

Robotics holds many advantages.  Productivity rises.  Robots need no downtime; they work 24×7 with consistent results.  They are less prone to error, improving both efficiency and product quality. Robots perform jobs considered too dangerous for humans.

Though the cost of robotics continues to decline, a trend expected to continue, they require a significant capital investment.  Advanced skillsets are needed to operate and maintain robots.  Qualified workers are in short supply and highly compensated.

Matthew Rendall, writer for TechCrunch, the publication of crowdfunding CrunchBase, believes robots improve the manufacturing industry: “So, will a robot take your job? Maybe. But in return, you- and your children and grandchildren- will likely find more meaningful work, for better pay.”  Robots will continue to play a major role in manufacturing.  Let’s see how the industry responds.
