 Mending manufacturing
This belated attention is welcome, although manufacturing's troubles began well before the onset of the 2001 recession (and may well have been a major factor in causing it) and have accelerated since.
Manufacturing has borne the brunt of the recent recession and post-recession job losses; 90% of total job losses since March 2001 have been in the manufacturing sector.
As the hemorrhaging job loss in manufacturing is stemmed, a number of problems that were exacerbated over the last six years could be profitably addressed through policy initiatives, especially regarding the negotiation and enforcement of trade agreements (including internationally recognized labor standards), legacy costs, pension reform, health care cost containment, and skills enhancement.

 Shifting blame for manufacturing job loss: Effect of rising trade deficit shouldn't be ignored
The decline of manufacturing as a share of total GDP over the past 30 years is often highlighted as evidence of a long-term trend away from consumer and business demand for manufacturing output.
Given that much of the manufacturing industry's distress is caused by events and policies outside its own control (i.e., the overvalued dollar), it seems appropriate for policy makers to lend support to the manufacturing industry.
Demand for manufactured goods would have to be extraordinarily unresponsive to price changes (or, in the jargon, to have a very low price elasticity of demand) to not compensate in a significant way for the rapid productivity increases in generating employment.

 Building Blue-Collar … Burgers?, Bush Report: Fast Food Work A Form Of Manufacturing? - CBS News
According to a White House report, new manufacturing jobs might be as close as your nearest drive-thru.
Manufacturing is defined by the Census Bureau as work involving employees who are "engaged in the mechanical, physical, or chemical transformation of materials, substances, or components into new products."
