Video – Job losses key issue in Ohio

February 25, 2008

The decline in U.S. manufacturing is nowhere more evident than in parts of Ohio.  As factories close, 250,000 manufacturing jobs have been lost in the past four years — and those jobs will be on voters’ minds March 4th when they go to the polls.

Manufacturing jobs across the board will be discussed this week at the annual Reuters Manufacturing Summit in Chicago. Executives are expected to have jobs, the overall economy and the M&A environment much on their minds as they meet with Reuters reporters and editors.
