Interesting claim

Under Barack Obama, U.S. manufacturers cut back substantially on outsourcing, and manufacturing jobs at home rose sharply.

It’s a testable claim too.

Ah, it’s a bollocks claim. Manufacturing employment as Obama left office was lower than when he came in.

Yes, yes, sure, recession and all that. And yet still, the claim is bollocks.

    I saw a graphic on Twitter recently that showed the number of manufacturing jobs had declined in the top 8 manufacturing export countries that had a trade surplus. I thought a the time I should bookmark it 🙁

    Maybe if I get bored later I’ll see if I can find it.
