Happy Labor Day

Hello Everyone,

First, I want to tell my contest is up at Coffee Time Romance & More. You can find it, along with my new book cover for A Fool's Fool, here:  Thank you for visiting and entering to win some goodies.  There are several other authors who have contests posted for the month of September as well.

Now, for my question of the day: Do you think our country has become more service oriented than a manufacturing country?

Bless America and the people in our country.

Have a great holiday!

Congrats on the cover. I like the smiley face.

About that question. My husband, a manufacturing engineer is recently retired, but right before he did, he watched a lot of jobs move away from the states.

a very good question, Sandy. This may be a case of perception becomes reality. The push is on for young folks to go for all kinds of service work. Much of that is in governmental service, noble in intent, but ultimately deadly to a private sector economy, in my opinion.
If the young ones are eschewing manufacturing jobs in favor of public sector service, we will lose our competitive advantage over our competitors. Already seems to be happening to some extent.
Bottom line, we need to encourage our kids to find work in whatever suits their skill levels.

Yes, a mixture of both would suit our country best. People should be in jobs they like and do well, whether in service or manufacturing.

Thanks, Christie. Many jobs have moved away from the states ever since NAFTA.

Thank you, Dale. An interesting response. In order for the young to get manufacturing jobs those jobs need to be here in the states and not overseas.

Thanks, Marianne. I agree we need both in our country.
