I believe we’ve lost too many industrial jobs in our country. We need to inventory available industrial facilities within the http://ashevilleprogressive.com/site/ Asheville, NC area and inventory potential products that we might find desirable to produce in and around our local area. Where-ever possible these industrial projects should be employee-owned and operated. Ideally, they should be sized at 100 or less employees. People with skills, ideas, or passion in any of these potential product areas please forward your information to me. We will form a committee to review your ideas, comments, and proposals.
We may have as many as 20,000.000 unemployed and maybe 80% of those employed are interested in changing jobs. America can do better!
It is not just that we are not making products for our own markets. our workers need to have a better reason for working. It seems like employee owned factories could nurture new enthusiasm in the work place. Coops could be a way to rive up the work place. Financial community bonding and employee investment could make small factory ventures possible. If you have knowledge in this area please let us know.
