Ohio Manufacturing: Good Times Are Back
It’s boom times once again for Ohio’s manufacturing industry.
Manufacturing, the largest sector in the Buckeye State’s economy, is revving up production and employment after being hit hard by the Great Recession.
Before Obama even took office, America had lost 4.4 million jobs. Track his progress since then.
The health of Ohio’s economy will be on the minds of many residents as they head to the polls on Super Tuesday to pick a Republican nominee for president. The future of American manufacturing is likely to play an even bigger role in November’s general election, since President Obama has been championing the sector as a vital element of the nation’s recovery.
The revival in Ohio is being fueled by the return of the American auto industry, the growth of energy production in the U.S. and the skyrocketing demand for steel and other building materials overseas.
