Manufacturer's Association Says Manufacturing is in Peril

President Obama is scheduled to come to Pittsburgh on Friday to speak about the importance of manufacturing to the U.S. Economy. He will tour and speak from Carnegie Mellon University.

David Taylor, the Director of Pennsylvania Manufacturing Association says that while there are 570,000 manufacturing jobs in the Commonwealth, more than the national average, manufacturing is in peril due to the cost of exporting energy, trade deficits with China and federal policies that don't allow manufacturing to grow.

"While President Obama is bound to say some really nice things about what manufacturing does for America he is out of control spending, he has destructive labor policies and he has destructive regulatory priorities really work against the manufacturing sector," he said.
