While I support the efforts to keep jobs and create jobs in the United States, it will only delay the inevitable and put off the suffering. Our next big threat to making a living in the United States is not foreign competition, but artifical intelligence and robots or automation. If you want an income source for the future, you need a business. Why more people can't see that jobs are becoming extinct, I just can't see. I believe it is cultural and perpetuated by our education system, as well as our government. You can't make someone hire you, but you can create a business. If you want control of your future, start a business.
This is a lot like raising tomatoes or even like growing trees for lumber, start now if you want it later. If you think you will want to eat in the future, then plant now.
The best thing you can do for your children and grandchildren from a financial and security perspective is start a business and raise them in it.
Stanford University has a course on Youtube on doing a start-up. It is a little slow and generic, the delivery is a bit choppy, but it probably has a lot of material that most people just starting in business have never considered, like "in a start-up you can probably change everything but your market, so get that right first" and it is free.
Here is one of my rules, exhaust the free options before you start parting with your money.
Just go to Youtube and search for Stanford Courses and it is there.
