Are jobs in this industry on the rise? Are there any sub-sectors that are growing?

Where are the jobs? Which places have the most machine operator opportunities?

I live on the west side of cleveland. A lot of machining work has gone to China and there seems no end to that. On the other hand employers have a hard time finding skilled operators.

What I wonder is just how skilled are these chinese workers? I can't believe, with us americans machining for years, that american businesses think we are not skilled anymore.

We the working class have been sold out in Washington. Four plant closings and now the only employment I can find is part time at Walmart......This is what I served four years in the army for???? Until we can replace the dem and rep parties we are doomed to become working poor. No more living wages. Worst of all is the future of our sons and daughters and grand babies. Free Trade...gotta love it.

Like alot of us I was Laidoff. Still am. What worries me is that I used to be able to go to a Temp. Agency and at least get some assignments,and/or hired thru them or on my own.
Now the best an agency can do is a minmum wage doing assembly and pkging!! This from 15.00 hr!! As the economy fell prices on everything goes UP! and wages drop WAYYYY down!!!!
Instead of tax breaks for sending work overseas they should put a high tax on sending work overseas and a high tax for shipping it back to the USA!!!
Thank you goverment and thank you to all the Companies that have sent work overseas!!

djlightner you need to think the selfish CEOs for not wanting a cut in profit. Remember, they can't feed their families on their multi-million dollar salaries..
