How to Revitalize U.S. Manufacturing

How to Revitalize U.S. Manufacturing Nine policies that could spark new growth in factory jobs and the economic benefits they bring By Bob Tita June 7, 2016 10:05 p.m. ET   After a long decline, manufacturing is returning to the U.S. Now it may be time for U.S. policy makers to give it an extra boost.   The U.S. shed 5.7 million manufacturing jobs from 2000 to 2010—more than a third of the manufacturing workforce—as companies abandoned plants and workers in favor of low-cost foreign countries. But in recent years, manufacturing employment has grown slightly as the auto industry rebounded and domestic plants became more cost-competitive with those of other countries where manufacturing expenses have escalated because of higher wages.   Now researchers, politicians and business leaders are coming forward with strategies to accelerate job gains and investment in manufacturing. Their ideas range from pruning regulations that raise the cost and effort of running a manufacturing operation to imposing a value-added tax on imports to beefing up training programs so companies have an easier time finding skilled workers.   Reviving the manufacturing sector won’t be easy—but, these advocates argue, it’s crucial. Manufacturing is one of the best generators of wealth for an economy, requiring processes, materials and work skills that create employment and profits at each step in an assembly. Countries that don’t make anything eventually start to lose their edge in research and product development.   “Manufacturing and design drive each other,” says Steven Schmid, an aerospace and mechanical engineering professor at the University of Notre Dame. “If you lose one, you’ll lose the other, too.”   The U.S.’s reliance on foreign-made goods provides a conduit for trillions of dollars to leave the country. The U.S. trade deficit—the difference between what is imported and what the U.S. exports—amounted to $500 billion, or about 3% of total U.S. GDP last year.   That money is used by foreign investors to purchase assets in the U.S., such as real estate or stocks, or to lend to Americans who are increasingly willing to become debt-saddled consumers. Left unchecked, the trade deficit... Read More

DETROIT BUSINESS LEADER OFFERS REAL HOPE FOR JOB SEEKERS “Debut Book, “The Job Search Process” Opens Up Career Opportunities to Everyone”   Troy, Mich. (December, 21, 2015) – Todd Palmer is a renowned thought leader and top staffing and recruiting executive who is committed to improving lives. As a successful leader who has spent years building up a multi-million dollar recruiting & staffing firm, Palmer is now setting his sights on even loftier goals – helping others find meaningful work and expanding their career opportunities through the release of his new book.   Just in time for December graduations or those New Year resolutions that involve a job change or career growth, Palmer’s debut book, “The Job Search Process”, provides a practical, targeted guide to landing a new job in only 30 days. This latest work has already been nominated for both the Axiom Book Award and the Ben Franklin Business Book Award for 2016.   In this career primer, Todd reveals the secrets that prevent many job seekers from landing a new position, while providing a call to action for all career-minded people: “Most people have blind spots when it comes to looking at themselves, their skillsets, and their job expectations. Jobs are closely tied to our identity, and often have a great impact on our self-worth. My goal is to help each and every job seeker overcome their fears and concerns, and attain the job they desire.”   In my book, I teach people the basics, not just the WHERE, WHAT and WHEN, but the HOW: How to find job openings How to write a resume How to excel in the interview and finally How to “get” the job     I also provide them with a Killer close, guaranteed to get almost any job.”   “The Job Search Process” is a very practical tool for becoming more self-aware, while maximizing job search efforts, preparing for interviews and landing that prized position.

What People Are Saying

I have worked with other recruiters and agencies through the years and Diversified has been the best I’ve had the pleasure to work with. I can’t say enough good things about their diligence, drive and focus towards meeting our needs. Diversified has netted us some very good, skilled candidates. I haven’t been to your office, but it appears that Diversified Staffing has a very efficient and well run organization. I am still puzzled how your company is able to find the high level of qualified people. Whatever strategy or process you all have, don’t change it!

Working with Diversified Industrial Staffing has been great. The entire process from start to finish was streamlined and easy to follow. The staff at Diversified is very helpful and professional. I was impressed that they took the time to give me personal attention and find me a position that matched what I was looking for, just minutes away from my home.  The best part of working for Diversified is feeling like I am part of a “team”. I would recommend Diversified Industrial Staffing because they were kind, courteous and a pleasure to work with. I couldn’t be happier!

My overall experience with Diversified Industrial Staffing has been amazing! I was  “in a jam” regarding my career and they were able to “pull me out”.  I was impressed that I called them on a Monday, not only were they able to move up an already scheduled interview, but they were able to get me a phone interview that very afternoon!  I was impressed that there process was so fast and easy to follow. They were able to find me interviews for positions that are relevant to what I was  looking for, at great companies, in a higher wage than I would have expected. I was  impressed by the speed and personal attention I received from my Candidate Specialist. Compared to other recruiting companies that I  has worked with, I felt that Diversified actually cared about me as a professional. I am so thankful to Diversified, and really feel that they genuinely care about trying to help me and want to help better my life.

I was in a very bad place when Diversified found my resume and helped me get a new job.  I was able to keep my house and I can provide for my family.  What else can you ask for? I came in the door at Diversified with a lot of skepticism from previous experience with other headhunters. Diversified changed that for me…  They were concerned for my well-being. The staff at Diversified was helpful and professional, just the kind of friends you need when the chips are down.
