    Another major diufficulty facing manufacturers is simply location- the labor pool is simply located elsewhere and many are not in a position to relocate because their homes will not sell in this market... throw in all the social ramifications of pulling up roots (leaving friends, family and a local culture with which they're accustomed and comfortable) and many opt instead to stay put. For the unemployed, the relocation option is even more unattractive because employers generally have a strong bias towards hiring prospects who are currently working.

    If I needed a job that badly, I'd sleep in my car.

    Car/camper sleeping is precisely what was happening at San Francisco International while the expansion was occuring. However, insurance proved the option too risky thus workers had nowhere to camp.

    Some manufacturing jobs are difficult..

    I used to work in a metal shop as a brake press and shear operator... Forming a piece of metal to specs is difficult - but you eventually get comfortable with it and learn the trade.

    I will say it certainly takes intelligence and knowledge of tools..

    I had fun doing it... Not to mention throwing steel around gets you buffed up :lol:
