WASHINGTON — Investments are up, exports are rising — now the only missing element in the Made in USA push is more jobs.
Even as the industry undergoes a resurgence in activity not seen since the Nineties, employment in textiles and apparel continues to decline, albeit at a slower rate than in recent years. Increased productivity is one reason, while ongoing caution as to whether Made in USA’s momentum will be maintained is another.
