Manufacturers and government leaders including Florida Gov. Rick Scott and U.S. Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker gathered in Orlando, Fla., Thursday for the first day of a two-day summit hosted by Wal-Mart and NRF focused on bringing more manufacturing jobs back to the United States. "Today, America has an abundance of entry-level jobs and some high-end jobs. But the middle has eroded. Most people agree it can't go on like this," said Wal-Mart's U.S. President and CEO Bill Simon.
