This is another thing about our media that irritates me. In my state there are numerous manufacturing facilities from Germany that have set up. I wouldn't necessarily give credit to Obama because our governor has gone overseas to fight for these jobs, but none the less why doesn't it make national media like all the "outsourcing' does? BMW has a large facility here. It's great for our local economy. They continue to add on and bring more jobs. This makes it to the local news then we never hear about it again.
People are so busy thinking that no one would bring jobs here (because they think this is the greatest nation), when in reality USA workers are cheaper than many of the countries bringing jobs here.
A little quote I found interesting "In 2010, Germany produced more than 5.5 million automobiles; the U.S produced 2.7 million. At the same time, the average auto worker in Germany made $67.14 per hour in salary in benefits; the average one in the U.S. made $33.77 per hour. Yet Germany’s big three car companies—BMW, Daimler (Mercedes-Benz), and Volkswagen—are very profitable....more."
