And the pipe for the oil industry comes from China! Saw in an alumni magazine yesterday that a recent graduate works for a major railroad and coordinates shipments of pipe from China to the oil fields in ND and then coordinates using the same containers to ship grain out of ND.
America has lost a lot of different skills & production capabilities because the jobs were sent out of the country. Now they have the capability to produce a lot of things that we can no longer produce. Shame, shame on us!
