The kack of a manufacturing culture isn’ just a US thing. When I left university in 1978 in the UK it was easy to get a job in electronics manufacturing but gradually over my 40+ year working life companies failed to keep up investment in people and equipment so economics dictated that manufacturing moved to countries with lots of cheap labour. Result? - skilled engineers unable to get a job that paid a decent salary so they left engineering to join service industries.
