A Manufacturing "Makeover"
In the Northwest Indiana Times today, reporter Bowdeya Tweh offers an excellent summary of AAM's Wednesday night jobs summit in Merrillville, IN. With White House manufacturing advisor Ron Bloom giving the keynote address, the event provided plenty of discussion on the challenges facing the U.S. economy.
Tweh quotes Bloom as saying that "the country needs to get back into the business of making things." Bloom also emphasized manufacturing's importance to the U.S. economy, pointing out that in recent years the U.S. has lost its way, "allowing manufacturing to erode and people to believe financial businesses could provide the backbone of the economy."
