Hurray! Jobs are returning to America. It's slow but it's a start. And notice that the wages. While they won't make anyone rich, they are above the minimum. With a shortage of experienced workers, that's expected.

There is a good reason for the shortage of workers. Even at $17/hour it's still a sweatshop. If that example is the kind of jobs coming back, most of them will end up going to recent immigrants. I can't see recent college (or even high school) graduates wanting to sit at a sewing machine all day.
