I just think you have to be careful not to conflate. Americans are willing to work in manufacturing; that's obviously easy to see. They are not willing to work for Chinese manufacturing compensation, even after you correct for environmental impact and shipping costs.

If manufacturing simply can't pay what an American worker needs to make, their willingness to work in factories isn't relevant, is it?
