Coyote Blog's Warren Meyer:
[T]he manufacturing sector is as strong as ever. The only thing that has changed is that manufacturing’s share of employment has declined. Yesterday’s blue collar worker is now a service or office worker.

It is particularly odd that the Left should today be the one’s lamenting the job shift away from manufacturing and expressing nostalgia for the 1950′s. When I grew up in the 1970′s, the soul-sucking mindless dangerous awfulness of manufacturing work was a big concern of the Left. They wanted nice, clean, more cerebral and rewarding jobs for manufacturing workers, but now, never satisfied, they want the opposite.
Agreed--several times.

As I comment over there:

>>> now, never satisfied, they want the opposite.

No, they want the end of all jobs.

Except hunter. And gatherer.

Those two jobs are OK.

Postmodern Leftism is a culturally suicidal meme. It is a cancerous rot eating away at Western Civ, and needs to be exposed for the foul pervertant it actually is.
