Reading an article in the recent @AMEconnect Target Magazine about Reshoring. The media would have you believe that we have a lost the bulk of our manufacturing jobs to China or Mexico. In fact, the article says the U.S. is still the second largest manufacturer in the world. Since the recession, manufacturing employment is up by 900,000 and overall output is up 20 percent.

Here's a fact that surprised me from the article as well. Walmart, who everyone believes has nothing but international suppliers has dramatically increased their "Made in the USA" supplier base.
