American Factory

Watched this on Netflix streaming and don't have a date, but it was soon after it was available. I was very interested because it was about Dayton, Ohio and I knew some of the problems faced by that city. I thought that it could have been better. It focused on the incompatibility of the American and Chinese workers and the hostility and distrust of both sides. At the very end, it only briefly mentioned the real problem, when the Chinese bosses were walkingthrough the factory and discussing installing robots and how many workers could be eliminated because the machines could do the work. That's the future. But even robots require workers for programming and maintenance and the American workers are generally not educated enough to take over those types of jobs. Education is the real national tragedy.
