Fleshing Out My Thoughts
Hamburger flipping is not manufacturing, reasons:
    The hamburger must be prepared at the same time the customer needs it

    Which means the hamburger certainly can't travel far, meaning it must be prepared near the customer

    Assembling hamburgers requires no special tools or equipment (most of you have frying pans/microwaves)

    It degrades, even insults, the real manufacturers

    Where could it possibly end? Does mixing sugar, water and lemon juice make a few kids with a stand "manufacturers?"

Seems mostly like a scam to bolster US manufacturing numbers, depressing for 30 years now.
