Your second source speaks of declining federal job training funding which causes a lack of skilled workers. And Donald Trump wants to cut federal job training programs by 40%.

The Toyota Mazda plant was "officially" announced in 2016. Those of us associated with Toyota have been hearing whispers around the office since 2014, which means the planning was started well before that. Well over 3 years ago they were in our plant scouting locations for "something big".
