Letter: Why is Maine not seeing the identical manufacturing features?

A latest article within the BDN discusses how manufacturing is a prime contributor to Maine’s gross home product, and that since 2022 the roles inside this business have fallen 0.5 %. General the U.S. has had a 6.4-percent rise in manufacturing jobs, so why is it declining in Maine?

The legacy industries which have sustained Maine for many years are declining with the arrival of tech jobs. That is fascinating to me as a Borgen Challenge supporter who advocates for the discount of worldwide poverty; one of many optimistic takeaways for the U.S. to contribute to international help is that it helps improve jobs right here. Once we take into consideration how poverty impacts a inhabitants, it comes right down to safety.

The shortage of meals safety and even housing safety limits the flexibility to spend any amount of cash anyplace else. As soon as folks have achieved that monetary safety they are going to need to spend their cash on issues and actions that fulfill their self-fulfillment wants compared to solely worrying about their fundamental and psychological wants.
