Apple isn’t going to move manufacturing back to the US
Any honest presidential candidate regardless of party should say clearly and indeed proudly that America doesn’t want these jobs to come back. Final assembly jobs are low-skilled, low-paying occupations; no American would wish to support a family on what the jobs would pay. Workers at China’s Foxconn, which manufacturers the iPhone, make about $402 per month after three months of on-the-job probation. Even at the lowest minimum wage in the U.S. — $5.15 an hour in Wyoming — American workers can’t beat that.
The only way the economics might make sense is if they build an entirely automated factory, which would create, what, 30 jobs? There’s a reason manufacturing moved out of the USA.
