How to rebuild American Manufacturing to create Jobs and Prosperity. 
Presented by Michele Nash-Hoff
A reminder to join us at our Jan 2017 PDM, on Wednesday the 11th, with a presentation by Michele Nash-Hoff.
Please note this is a variation from our typical meeting on Tuesdays.

For over sixty years, American manufacturing dominated globe. High-paying manufacturing jobs spurred a robust and growing economy, and we had little dependence on foreign nations for manufactured goods. American manufacturing became synonymous with quality and ingenuity. 
From 2000 to 2011, the U. S. lost 5.8 million manufacturing jobs and 57,000 manufacturing firms closed. Offshoring was a major cause of the Great Recession, the slow economic growth thereafter, U.S and state budget deficits, continued high unemployment, the shrinking middle-class, and declining innovation. 
Find out how we can rebuild American manufacturing that would create jobs and restore American prosperity.
