Apparently, some are coming to the ‘troit — developer is building a development “for Chinese immigrants to allow them to attend UMich at in-state rates.”
(not sure if this will fly well — bet they’ll raise the residency requirement, plus there are non-discrimination rules unless it’s set up as a co-op).November 9, 2012 at 12:01 PM #754252dumbrenterParticipant

“Highly automated” manufacturing is the key.

Baxter, a robot from a company called Rethink, is about to go on the market for $22K. This will enable work to be done for about $4 per hour.
Any job Baxter can do should be able to return to the US.November 10, 2012 at 12:17 AM #754307The-ShovelerParticipant

Here is the article, for the lazy…
If I were an big(er) employer, I would stay away too, especially from California. It wouldn’t make any sense… Nevada, Arizona, Texas might be better options. Kinda like what Intel does.
Well thank god they aren’t coming! We won’t have a foreign company setting up shop in America, California or Detroit…
To think that a company would come here and offer employment to Americans would be completely reprehensible. Get out the fishnets and suicide prevention hotlines. Because obviously if they did that, they would have a way to skirt every unemployment law possible (unlike any other company that sets up shop here)…We don’t need more companies to hire. We don’t need more jobs created here…Phew… That was a close one! We’re better off now!November 10, 2012 at 12:35 PM #754318spdrunParticipant
Except that a lot of intelligent engineering types prefer California to nowhere states like AZ and NV (Texas is a bit better depending where you are). Note that Silicon Valley is still in Silicon Valley, not in Poenis, Lost Wages, or Austin!
