Good Signs for Ohio, Manufacturing

From The Columbus Dispatch, “More jobs on the horizon locally,” which in this case means Central Ohio:

One of the engines of Ohio’s recovery has been the sector that contributed so much to the decline: manufacturing, which added 12,300 jobs in April.

“The worst seems to be behind us,” said Eric Burkland, president of the Ohio Manufacturers Association, a trade group. “People are still cautious about hiring, but we’re clearly seeing some improvement, and people are being called back to work.”

The story is pegged to a Manpower Inc. survey that reports new hiring.
