DOn't have a number since 1994- it'd be an estimate any way. NO one could give you an accurate number because 1 manufacturing job might create 3-4 more that it depends upon... like car manufacturing and car parts manufacturing It's not just the 1 job, it causes a domino effect.
And the results are what we have today ! Bunch of sheetty-azz WalMart and Fast Food jobs so a few can be ultra wealthy.

Example ; 5 of the top 10 billionaires are Walton family kids... WTF would it hurt WalMart to raise salaries a tad to give their workers a "living wage" - the Waltons can damm well afford it. Would it really hurt them to maybe NOT in the top 10 ? crazy
