Los Alamos could thrive with manufacturing training institute

-A A +A

On June 11, the Wall Street Journal did a major section, “A Revolution in the Making” on the titanic changes coming in manufacturing. This special insert detailed how various processes and technologies were coming together, along with seminal cost advantages, to swing the multi-decade downturn in United States manufacturing prowess to our favor. But one article in particular got my attention.
“Help Wanted. A lot of It,” described the incredible number of trained workers that will be required to bring on this new epoch. While I’m not going to impress you with the statistics, I am going to say this…
Given the increasing greying of Los Alamos County (median age over 50 by 2020), the glacial-like pace of a kowtowing county council and its slavish obsession with employing everybody (Four percent plus of the population, two to three times the national average), they seem oblivious to our inherent natural advantages. It really might be about time to “think this one outside the box.”
