Q: On working in American Manufacturing: It is bothersome to hear in the media that manufacturing is practically non-existent in America. I feel our challenge as “baby-boomers” is to bring younger generations of workers into manufacturing where there are good challenging careers and benefits. Technology is everywhere in manufacturing these days and melding the knowledge of the older workforce with the younger generations is exciting!
