I hear you Bill but to look at it another way. Besides a few companies, who needs them? Just like textiles. Find a store with furniture made in the US. Sure there are some but the vast majority are overseas for very low wages. And just like there are still people using textiles to sew as a hobby, most woodworking in the US is delegated to hobby status. If they learn the craft, there’s little hope of making a living doing it. Or at least a quality living. I’ll bet the latinos have the skill, but do they also accept low wages?

I can’t tell you if it’s just a Mississippi issue as I wouldn’t know where to go around here to see a business made in woodworking with employees.
