Growth in Manufacturing

On Friday, the third anniversary of President Obama signing the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act into law, Congressman Bob Brady, Pennsylvania State Treasurer Rob McCord and Pennsylvania AFL-CIO President Rick Bloomingdale held a press conference call to highlight the fact that American manufacturers are creating jobs for the longest stretch since the 1990s.  In the past 30 months, they have added nearly 400,000 jobs across the country.  Instead of cutting jobs or shipping them abroad, American companies are now "insourcing," or bringing overseas jobs back home.
