How robots are eating the last of Americasand the worldstraditional manufacturing jobs<quoted text> the robots ,thats great!!!
Many have blamed this decline on outsourcingthe movement of factories to countries where labor is cheaper. And theres no doubt that outsourcing has led to fewer factory jobs in the US and other rich countries.
