Manufacturing Jobs on the Rise

Is it true? Can it be?

As originally reported in the Wall Street Journal, manufacturing jobs are actually on the rise in the United States. This sector of employment is actually creating more jobs than it is cutting - which is welcome news to the thousands who are currently unemployed.

This is the first time in a decade there were more manufacturing jobs created in the US than "out sourced" or eliminated. It is estimated that there should be an increase in manufacturing jobs by about 2% per year, through 2015.
