But for now, even as companies add more robots to North American factory floors, the number of human jobs in manufacturing is also on the rise.
Last year, for the first time in decades, more manufacturing jobs came back to the United States than left
Labor has become more expensive in China than in the past, with Chinese wages going up 12 percent to 15 percent a year for the past 15 years

why aren’t U.S. manufacturing jobs plummeting? The answer, for now, may be that robots are actually helping bring more jobs back from overseas than they’re eliminating.
