“Growing up in the small midwestern city of Wabash, Indiana; I witnessed the loss of the United States manufacturing base first hand. Factory closures, recessions and mortgage crisis degraded the identities of these small communities. The idea that “we make, the world takes” no longer holds true for many Americans. My friends and family who have been affected by this transition have looked to politicians such as President Trump who promise to “Take the rust out of the rust belt”, while others have chosen to utilize the internet and small business models to create jobs they are passionate about.”
