Reality of job market mfg "returning to USA" is simply most "mfg jobs" are just assembling off shore high value products into low value USA mfg assembly/sub-assembly by lower paid workers. Auto is classic example when Congress had mfg's post NUMBER OF USA PARTS in auto, rather then VALUE of USA PARTS, aka one USA-bolt=one computer/radio.Generally our work force has become nonunion, low wages, often lower or if there, unaffordable benefits, retirement, etc, workers wages will not support such luxury, States competing with each other n tax free, no unions, tax credits, "Incentives" (which foul up tax base/services and citizens make up delta) to get some mfg to set up low wage shops there. I would guess the most "new jobs in mfg" are in 20-25K/year range with little real world benefits, nonunion, simple "assembly" not mfg shops. We can blame selves as work force undeducated to compete at world class jobs/mfg. Nasty reality folks, but that is USA future, major tourist destination and cheap labor for mfg assembly plants.
