Ed Schultz Radio Show, 1:05 pm ET TODAY: Mixed signals for revival of U.S. manufacturing
What if you got your old factory job back, but it paid far less than it used to? That's the question Michael Fletcher posed in a recent Washington Post article.
Fletcher says that while U.S. manufacturers are hiring again, "many of the jobs don’t pay anything close to what they used to." He reports that workers in Ohio who used to earn $20/hour at a Hoover plant are now being offered $7.50 an hour at a new EdenPure factory.
Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) Executive Director Scott Paul will talk about the prospects for these manufacturing workers in an interview at 1:05 pm ET today on the Ed Schultz radio show.
