Jobs Report: Manufacturing Industry Sector Posts Largest Gains In Two Decades…

In the latest Bloomberg News report on the labor market, Bloomberg buried the lede:

[…]  Goods-producing industries, which include mining, construction and manufacturing, added 95,000 jobs in February, the most since 2000.

This is critical for many reasons.  However, before going further, again we must remind everyone about the Magic Wand. WATCH:

.

What many people do not realize is the scope of four decades of lies being sold by politicians and political operatives, who are espousing the sales pitch of globalists, and who constructed the second (Wall Street) corporate paper economy around the premise of off-shoring manufacturing and industrial jobs.

The future of manufacturing is indeed a future growing in automation and labor productivity advances which are gained through innovation and technology.  However, the underlying need for the material doesn’t simply evaporate just because the manufacturing systems which create the end product becomes increasingly automated.

Globalists are stuck selling two mutually exclusive arguments:

  • #1 Manufacturing is becoming increasingly automated, thereby reducing the need for labor.
  • #2 Manufacturing companies out-source their jobs, to save money on labor costs.

These two economic talking points cannot reconcile.  They cannot reconcile because they are false assertions that conflict with each other.

If the primary reason manufacturers out-sourced their production is based on lower labor costs, and the future of manufacturing is based on automation, there is no reason in the future to out-source manufacturing jobs.

The need for the end product of manufacturing does not go away just because the market changes the process of manufacturing that product.   Full stop.  Think.

There is no reason the United States cannot lead the world in manufacturing process automation and simultaneously lead in the creation of products and the utilization of technology to build the systems of that manufacturing.  Again, full stop. Think.

Our President, and about a handful of people (myself included), fully understand this cognitive paradigm shift.  W. Edwards Demming never thought his altruistic intention to teach the skills of industrial manufacturing efficiency to the world would be manipulated and used by political globalists to advance the deterioration of the United States as the manufacturing epicenter of innovation.

We have been fighting against this insufferable globalist economic mind infection for many years, heck, decades; and we are finally going to prove that three decades of this stinking thinking is nothing but a flat out lie.

Back to the Jobs Report:

(Bloomberg) […] Employers added an above-forecast 235,000 positions in February, while measures of joblessness and underemployment improved, the Labor Department’s monthly report showed on Friday. Wage growth picked up and the share of prime-age Americans in the labor force rose to the highest since 2011, suggesting the economy’s strength is drawing people off the sidelines.

Analysts expect wage gains to gradually accelerate further, which will underpin consumer spending, the principal driver of economic growth, amid a first quarter that’s looking tepid.

“If you dig a bit deeper, there are three strong reasons for optimism: in the weather-adjusted data, in the wage growth and in the unemployment and participation rate,” said Gregory Daco, head of U.S. macroeconomics at Oxford Economics in New York.

Daco estimated that “weather-sensitive sectors” added about 75,000 jobs in February. Construction jobs rose by 58,000, the strongest gain in almost a decade, and followed a 40,000 increase in January.

[…]  Goods-producing industries, which include mining, construction and manufacturing, added 95,000 jobs in February, the most since 2000.

[…]  Consumer and business optimism for the economy have surged since Trump’s election…

Another measure of labor market slack, the U-5 rate, fell to 5.7 percent from 5.8 percent, matching the lowest level since 2007. Cited as an alternative indicator by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, the rate includes discouraged workers as well other so-called marginally attached workers, who aren’t working or actively looking for work but want a job.

The U-6, or underemployment rate, fell to 9.2 percent, which matched the lowest figure since 2008. That rate also includes part-time employees who want full-time work.  (more)

What you will find in all of Donald Trump’s positions, is a paradigm shift he necessarily understands must take place in order to accomplish the long-term goals for the U.S. citizen/worker as it relates to “entitlements” or “structural benefits”.

All other politicians begin their policy proposals with a fundamentally divergent perception of the U.S. economy. They are working with, and retaining the outlook of, a U.S. economy based on “services”; a service-based economic model. Consequently their forecasted economic growth projections are based on ever-increasing foreign manufacturing dependency, and even more solidifying service-based economics.

While this economic path has been created by decades old U.S. policy, and is ultimately the only historical economic path now taught in school, Trump intends to change the course entirely.

Because so many shifts -policy nudges- have taken place in the past several decades, few academics and even fewer MSM observers, are able to understand how to get off this path and chart a better course.

President Trump is proposing less dependence on foreign companies for cheap goods, (the cornerstone of a service economy) and a return to a more balanced U.S. larger economic model where the manufacturing and production base can be re-established and competitive based on American entrepreneurship and innovation.

No other economy in the world innovates like the U.S.A, Trump sees this as a key advantage across all industry – including manufacturing.

The benefit of cheap overseas labor, which is considered a global market disadvantage for the U.S., is offset by utilizing innovation and energy independence.  Removing many of the burdensome regulations eliminates choking business costs and provides an offset for any import cost increases.

The third highest variable cost of goods beyond raw materials first, labor second, is energy. If the U.S. energy sector is unleashed -and fully developed- the manufacturing price of any given product will allow for global trade competition even with higher U.S. wage prices.

In addition the U.S. has a key strategic advantage with raw manufacturing materials such as: iron ore, coal, steel, precious metals and vast mineral assets which are needed in most new modern era manufacturing. Trump proposes we stop selling these valuable national assets to countries we compete against – they belong to the American people, they should be used for the benefit of American citizens. Period.

EXAMPLE: Currently China buys and recycles our heavy (steel) and light (aluminum) metal products (for pennies on the original manufacturing dollar) and then uses those metals to reproduce manufactured goods for sale back to the U.S. – Donald Trump is proposing we do the manufacturing ourselves with the utilization of our own resources; and we use the leverage from any sales of these raw materials in our international trade agreements.

When you combine FULL resource development (in a modern era) with with the removal of over-burdensome regulatory and compliance systems, necessarily filled with enormous bureaucratic costs, Donald Trump feels we can lower the cost of production and be globally competitive.

In essence, Trump changes the economic paradigm, and we no longer become a dependent nation relying on a service driven economy.

In addition, an unquantifiable benefit comes from investment, where the smart money play -to get increased return on investment- becomes putting capital INTO the U.S. economy, instead of purchasing foreign stocks.

With all of the above opportunities in mind, this is how we get on the pathway to rebuilding our national infrastructure. The demand for labor increases, and as a consequence so too does the U.S. wage rate which has been stagnant (or non-existent) for the past three decades.

As the wage rate increases, and as the economy expands, the governmental dependency model is reshaped and simultaneously receipts to the U.S. treasury improve. More money into the U.S Treasury and less dependence on welfare programs have a combined exponential impact. You gain a dollar, and have no need to spend a dollar. That is how the SSI and safety net programs are saved under President Trump.

When you elevate your economic thinking you begin to see that all of the “entitlements” or expenditures become more affordable with an economy that is fully functional.

As the GDP of the U.S. expands, so too does our ability to meet the growing need of the retiring U.S. worker. We stop thinking about how to best divide a limited economic pie, and begin thinking about how many more economic pies we can create.

President Donald Trump’s “America First” economic thinking is intensely generational in scope.

Simply put, we begin to….

…..Make America Great Again !

        Remember McCain’s infamous comment (and he had many) telling the people of Michigan(?) that the jobs weren’t coming back? From Sundance’s explanation, the politicians have had us on low-wage “service” economy path for a long time, yet we’ve always been capable of manufacturing and producing. I mean why buy cheap goods from China which break almost immediately, forcing you to buy another… or clothing made from cheap fabric, which tears or wears out quickly, and has to be replaced…

        I buy everything I can find Americana – back when we actually made dishes and furniture, and the stuff is high quality and doesn’t chip or break or look cheap.

        That’s the country I grew up in and the one President Donald Trump is bringing back. Paying for quality in the long run is much cheaper than having to replace products within months of purchasing – no savings in that.

        It’s also why I can still use my grandmother’s black dial-up phone (& the landline I refuse to give up) – which kids today wouldn’t know how to use. 🙂

This is a “beyond comprehension” brilliance in this negotiation! It will also be the “KEY” to installing our anti-progressive agenda for our next 100 years if played correctly…..and we have the man for the season in the Whitehouse at this very time. This construct mitigates labor cost to same / similar basis in either place, USA, mexico, wherever!

      It comes down to one basic thing….human oppression! the reason mexico is cheaper on labor today is because of the level of oppression the government an their crouptocrat pals are willing to inflict on their people…the script is flipped and the eyes of the people world over opened! ….it’s the same in china, russia, india, korea….basically everywhere. their governments are practicing slavery on their people and taking the rewards and now people will openly see it!

    • I agree with your assessment of Obama’s ability to understand how to bring jobs back. He just doesn’t get it. The thought that reducing regulations and reducing taxes would bring companies back and they would create the jobs was foreign for him. I believe he thinks, like most Democrats, that govt creates jobs and thus the only way to create more jobs was more regulation and more taxes. Socialism just doesn’t work, no matter how many times they try.

      This is a brilliant point, so I’m going to build on it.

      The man is a consummate parrot. He doesn’t even choose between pre-packaged viewpoints. Heck – even a parrot shows more rebelliousness.

      When you see how the Obama viewpoint arises – how the ideology moved downstream and lodged in his brain, you see where the real power is – CREATION OF THE GASLIGHTING NARRATIVE.

      The idea that certain jobs leave America and certain jobs stay is GASLIGHTING of the highest order. Memes like “service economy” were created – not as errors, but as sabotage. They were designed to create an unhealthy America, while pumping lifeblood to a communist system in China. When the people behind the narrative got caught on that, they SHIFTED THE NARRATIVE (using India) to keep half the equation and carry the other half out by stealth.

      It is my contention that the “experts” and global elite are not in fact free – that their thinking is highly managed by a variety of processes. Those who control the flow of information at the top – which is a small and easy target – control the top.

      These ideas are embedded in the thinking of people subconsciously, flowing outward as false constants in their thoughts, actions, predictions and strategies. It’s bad data. Just bad data.

      Want to kill it? Set up alternatives to Bilderberg, Trilateral, and all the rest, that are CONTROLLED AND RUN BY THE PEOPLE WHO ATTEND. Oh, trust me – there will be kicking, fighting, and screaming. But there is always screaming when self-determination emerges.

      The nation that sets it up at a distance, protects the participants from spying (even their own), publishes every word and allows the cameras in, will not only do the world a service – they will create progress like this world has never seen.

      Bad secrecy at the top has created bad secrecy at the bottom. KILL IT!

          • The Pew article didn’t discuss the stay-at-home Mom phenomenon, which I believe is growing. After you get your pencil out and calculate the cost of the wife working outside the home, compared to savings achieved by not doing that, many times couples discover the great benefit to the couple and the family when Mom is home during the day.

            I’m not discounting the underground market, but the above trend plays into that quite nicely. Time enough to shop and thrift stores, collect coupons, trade veggies with your neighbor who gardens… all these add up.

            Another trend that contributes to this is home schooling, which is massively ignored by the media, and a good thing, too! Don’t want to alert the antis, do we? And since to govt people everything is scarce and getting scarcer (need a wand, right?), declining school enrollment probably seems “natural.” Aren’t we seeing fights at city school board meetings when school-closings are being proposed?

        If you are willing to go to a place where your current financial situation allows you to live comfortably, it’s cheaper and less stressful, and if you are able to exercise, healthier not to work. If you choose a rural area with established farms, it’s also an advantage in a SHTF economy implosion.

        If you can get by without a car, if you don’t need special clothing and are comfortable with modest possessions, it’s actually a safer choice than a trying to maintain a marginally paying job, fraught with stress and no time for exercise, and which you could lose tomorrow, IMO.

        If you’re talented in certain areas you can also do ‘gig’ work, on your time schedule, which is often more productive because it’s not being done under stress. Gig work in areas that has a societal demand (entertainment) or any kind of craftsman’s work can tide you over nicely in tough economic times if you are able to get a handle on your expectations, i.e, not always look for something ‘better’, whether it be work, housing or possessions.

      What is the Labor Force Participation Rate
      The labor force participation rate is the percentage of working-age persons in an economy who:
      Are employed
      Are unemployed but looking for a job

      Typically “working-age persons” is defined as people between the ages of 16-64. People in those age groups who are not counted as participating in the labor force are typically students, homemakers, non-civilians, institutionalized people, and persons under the age of 64 who are retired. https://www.thoughtco.com/labor-force-participation-rate-definition-1148135

    Went over to visit Mom and Dad and Fox News was on with Chris “Walrus” and Shep Smith and all they could talk about was “General Flynn and Trump’s connection with the Russians.” OMG!
    Get over it! Jobs are what this nation needs; not continued conspiracies. Sent an email to FOX and told them off.

      Well, Mark – that is about all they wanted to talk in the Press Conference – only one reference to the jobs report was made – and that was complaining about President Trump jumping the gun on his tweet – Sad – really Sad!

          It certainly was not Sean’s best conference – but, yeah – too many questions about Flynn – if you don’t want to be bored – just read the comments – and – it was definitely not a ‘One Question Friday’, either – * Sigh *

            Ok, here’s a tip for Sean, not that he needs any help from me. But since we are the most friendly audience he has, here we go. We give him a magic wand, and play the clip Sundance posted above of Obama — complete with the circus music at the end. And we ask him to talk more about jobs, and the difference between O and President Trump.

            Wish we could fill the room with all of us, and our questions — we could control the message quite nicely!

    • FOX was on at my house during that…..I literally said to my tv, can’t you talk about ANYTHING other than Trump attacks? (yes, I talk to my cat, too)

      My, has FOX changed. Since Roger Ailes left, FOX is in an intellectual death spiral.

      Years ago, they were pretty fair and balanced, IMHO. They presented both the conservative side and the liberal in a reasonable manner.

      But today, the reasonable liberals, other than a couple of older holdovers, are no more. They have instead been replaced by the crazies that Savage talked about in his book, Liberalism is a Mental Illness.

      Yesterday, I actually watched a big eyed liberal lady proclaiming (OK, screaming in the liberal way) how thousands of women around the world will now die because Trump cut off international abortion funding……LOL…..

    There have been inklings of improved job production. The first thing the MSM does is states it very tentatively, and beings to fake a debunking.

    But when Obama made so many part-time, minimum wage jobs, and as individuals gave up on searching for work, leading to “unemployment numbers” dropping as more and more became unemployed, the faithful Marxists praised the good news.

    I expect a full “debunking” response to appear after noon tomorrow. They always take about a day to get their story straight, then get on mission getting the story out simultaneously.

    Sad that Perot never got his act together…I did very well during the tech boom having graduated college in 91 and going to work at a brokerage house…I knew Perot and the “sucking sound” was correct and that was before China joined WTO in 2000 and finished putting into play what Sundance so concisely writes about in this article…

    I’m sure most of us still look for made in the USA and it’s frustrating…I’m sure most of us would pay a little more if need be and the quality has to be better then the cheap junk in many stores…

    Keep an eye on Wilbur Ross….He’s is something and fully understands what needs to be done…Someone asked him about a trade war and he replied ” POLICING trade agreements is not WAR ” ….

        And that’s the moral / civil component of political economy.

        “Economy” comes from the Greek “oikonomia” which literally means the law or administration of a house(hold).

The stranger next to me put down the store brand and picked up Domino sugar. To be fair, the other brand is most likely made in the US(I need to check next time).

      Beautiful lion sculpture – it is a memorial.

      “The Lion of Lucerne (known also as the Lion Monument) is a memorial located in Lucerne, Switzerland. This monument is a rock relief carved into the cliff face of a former sandstone quarry, and features a dying lion. Sculpted during the early part of the 19th century, the purpose of the Lion of Lucerne was to commemorate the Swiss Guards who lost their lives in 1792 during the French Revolution. ”

      Alex…excellent observations of a hopeful time. What fortunes were made in selling puts!

      Perot was a successful businessman who saw what was happening with trade deals, and the predictable conclusion of the outcomes. If we listen, we can still hear the “sucking sound” he described so succinctly. I actually attended a rally of his in Huntington at the City Hall Jean Carlo Stephenson Auditorium…standing room only.

      The outcome of our fate would not have changed with whomever became president in 1992 and 1996…both candidates being globalist, OWO acolytes; however, I believe that there was “something” between GHW and Perot. His two candidacies guaranteed democrat victories.

    This is all good news, but it will take a long time to turn this giant ship of state in the other direction. Back in the 1980’s big U.S. corporations made the decision to downsize their research and development departments because the cost of money became a lot cheaper and they decided to use leverage buy outs to acquire products and services to expand their portfoliers rather than invest in R&R and test markets. After 35 plus years of this the innovative know how has not been able to be passed down to the next generation because the people who had the talent are gone.

    This is nothing. Wait till Trump gets his Tax Cuts. Not to mention that all that money made outside America will free to be used here. We will see 400,000-600,000 new jobs a month. And most of that in manufacturing.

    It is only when the economy starts truly booming that we will get people hired and truly reach full employment. And when that happens, companies have to compete for employees, and our wages will boom too. And that will happen despite all the immigration legal or illegal which puts a downward pressure on wages.

    Obama should stick to arguing against strawmen. Strawmen do not prove him wrong or point out Obama’s lies about their position and the flaws in Obama’s arguments. The beauty of President Trump is he proves Obama wrong just by doing what Trump promised.

    What Sundance’s excellent piece also shows is there was really only two objectives in dismantling our manufacturing base & innovation spirit…

    #1: Enrich the elites/globalists
    #2: Keeping the democrats/UniParty in power via a dependency on government handouts

    The last three decades or so have been nothing but the wholesale rape & theft of our resources & our entrepreneurial spirit

    And for what? What else, money & power

    The more we realize how we’ve been snookered & how our children’s futures were almost taken from them by a bunch of criminals & lowlife political miscreants, the more enraged we should get

    Utterly amazing how we’ve allowed a tiny cabal of the monied elite & their scumbag handmaidens in office to wrest control of our birthrights & our futures. Simply taken from us, right under our noses

    We’d better have a serious rebirth in this country with Trump in office, & we’d better learn our lessons. You don’t elect people & just walk away. You watch & analyze their every move

    Just an anecdotal thing here, but I’ve been contacted by headhunters consistently since I left the Navy about 14 years ago. This is from keeping my resume updated on various sites, and headhunters use that to find people with certain skills. It used to be that I’d get an email or even a phone call from one pretty often. Over the past 3 or 4 years that turned into occasionally, and then very occasionally (as in a few times a year).

    Some time around maybe a month or so after the election, I started getting a few more than normal in my inbox. Over the past couple of months it has been a steady stream of several a week (just saw one in my email today).

    Now, most of the headhunters are pretty closemouthed about what the nature of the job is these days and want to talk to you first and feel you out. But the ones that have said what the nature of the job is have covered three areas: Energy production, Energy resources, and Steel manufacturing.

    Every single one that has mentioned the job has been in either a power plant, oil/gas extraction, or a steel mill. I’ve not seen this much activity from headhunters in many years.

    It could be unrelated to the “Trump effect”…but I doubt it.

    Poooor Barry. He spent 8 long years lamenting that the world had changed, and there was nothing he could do to fix it (even with his magic pen and phone), this is “the new normal”. Get used to it.

    And then Trump is elected president, and immediately business optimism shoots up through the roof … and the markets rally … and then within months that optimism is manifest as economic growth and in February job growth exceeds expectations by 50% and all of the unexpected growth is in manufacturing!

    The very jobs Obama said were gone away and never coming back.

    And then some of Barry’s people start whining that those are really HIS jobs that he created or saved. That’s about his speed … he wasn’t responsible for anything that happened during his entire two terms (“Bush’s fault … I inherited a mess). Now he’s going to try and take credit for a long-delayed recovery that is happening precisely because his successor repudiated Obama economic policies and promises to scrap Obamacare.

    Barry in incapable of understanding what happened. .

    “Globalists are stuck selling two mutually exclusive arguments:

    #1 Manufacturing is becoming increasingly automated, thereby reducing the need for labor.
    #2 Manufacturing companies out-source their jobs, to save money on labor costs.”

    No, these arguments aren’t mutually exclusive, they’re entirely consistent: American labor is expensive, the goal of business is to control costs by minimizing it through automation or outsourcing.

    However, the globalists are willfully blind to the reason why: The American social welfare state imposes enormous costs on businesses that use American labor, increasing the cost of already expensive labor exponentially.

    One of the arguments (lies) Obama used to sell Obamacare was that it would help make the American economy more competitive by reducing the expense of healthcare thereby making American labor more competitive in the global labor market. Yah. Right.

    Trump approaches the American economy like a businessman: He needs to offer a value proposition to entice businesses to locate HERE, not overseas. Cutting the burdensome costs that drive up the cost of American production to feed the welfare state and big government cancer is the biggest single thing he can do to bring jobs home.
