Ohio has seen its share of lost U.S. manufacturing
According to Steve Bennish at the Dayton Daily News, by 2010, "Ohio’s annual private payroll declined by $22 billion from total payroll in 2000, largely because of manufacturing declines from off shoring and globalization."
Bennish says that Ohio urgently needs a revamped U.S. approach to trade in order to rebuild its industrial sector. Specifically, the state's two U.S. Senators are pressing for action:
Meanwhile, as fears of a double-dip recession deepen, Ohio Sens. Rob Portman, a Republican, and Sherrod Brown, a Democrat, signed an urgent bipartisan appeal to the U.S. Department of Commerce to counter Chinese product dumping that hurts Ohio manufacturers including those serving the emerging renewable energy industry.
