The article "Manufacturing and Pursuit of the American Dream: Reality or Fool's Quest" appeared in the November/December 2012 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
It wasn’t so very long ago that a high school-educated, able-bodied person with a will to work typically had little trouble finding a decent job in manufacturing. Whether at an area job shop, an OEM plant or auto plant—work was to be had. Work that paid well enough to marry, buy a home, feed, raise and educate a family—with even enough left over for a modest retirement pension.
