To hear some politicians tell it, unfair trade and labor practices have been killing American factory jobs and punishing the U.S. economy for years — and 2018 is finally the year we fight back. As Michael Hicks and Srikant Devaraj of Ball State noted in a research report entitled “The Myth and Reality of Manufacturing in America,” productivity in the sector has exploded in the last decade or two thanks to technological innovations, with automation chief among them. For example, if productivity had remained constant from the year 2000 to 2010, U.S. manufacturers would have employed 20.9 million workers in 2010 to achieve that year’s total output, rather than just 12.1 million.
While a strong economy is helping to bolster the manufacturing industry, it's also being crunched by an increasingly tight labor market.
