Harmony is something we normally associate with music, but Don Keller applies it to the factory floor.
Northwest Indiana was forged largely on steel, and its lunch-pail identity is welded to the metal made in the blaze of the mills that loom over the lakeshore. But today's new jobs are more likely to be found in suburban business parks and health care facilities.
HOBART | In recent years, local steelmakers have made major investments in automated systems that scan the metal's surface for any flaws, to better meet the increasingly exacting standards of automakers and other customers.
HAMMOND | Manufacturers can pay factory workers pennies a day in Vietnam, China and other countries, and U.S. companies have often found it tough to compete with such rock-bottom labor costs.
Bring up manufacturing, and it might conjure mental images of shuttered factories or grimy, soot-smudged workers filing out of mill after a long shift.
Factory jobs still pay well, and have been offering new hires healthier paychecks than they could fetch in other professions.
When the weather heats up, your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system quickly becomes a most valuable player in your home life and stays that way for several months.
PORTAGE | If things go well, the switch to an automated trash and recycling system could come as early as September.
