Apple So, Apple is serious about this thing. Tim Cook has said in an interview the company plans to manufacture one line of Macs in the US, starting next year. Coincidentally (or not?), Foxconn has just announced it plans to expand its production facilities... Into the United States. There's no indication as of yet that the two are linked, but the coincidence is at least interesting.

The two really do go hand in hand. It's not accurate to simply say people don't have the skills. It's more likely that employment packages on offer are not attracting the desired workers. Companies used to pay employees to invest in vocational skills, that's unheard of any more. They expect highly skilled workers to walk in the door without investing a dime.
