I wanted to share this article from a couple of months ago published on The Information.
To manufacture at the scale and tolerance levels that Apple does requires deep knowledge and experience in fields including “metalworking, machine tooling, and other aspects of manufacturing assembly techniques”. The skills gap in the American workforce has been experiencing is not newsworthy as it has been consistently ongoing over the past few decades; however, the implications that this has for the behemoth from Cupertino is quickly becoming evident.
Let me know your thoughts!!
