From Empire of the In-Between by Adam Davidson in the New York Times Magazine:

“Calling for a return to the days everybody who was willing to put in a hard day’s work could make at good living at the factory is a fantasy, maybe a lie and certainly an implicit acknowledgment that nobody has any idea what to do with the underemployed in Trenton, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Southeast D.C.  It’s safer to talk about Pakistan.”

I can relate to that.
