The last time General Motors made a profit in Europe was the 20th century.
Not the longest article, so take the time and give it a read. While focused on manufacturing in the state of Indiana, the article points out that while low cost manufacturing has moved overseas, there continues to be a need in the US for companies engaged in manufacturing.

Keeping in the spirit of my last post (unusual libraries), I am sharing this article. The headline of the article is unfortunately misleading or at best just focusing on the negative.

Unusual is an understatement with some of the libraries in this article. Enjoy.
Great story about a person following their passion and finding success.
