The Midwest is Outpacing the South in Creating Manufacturing Jobs

It’s not just Ohio State that has the Midwest on the up and up these days.  When you look at the numbers starting off the new year on manufacturing jobs, they show that the Midwest is outperforming the Southeast, and by a pretty healthy margin.
