Manufacturing sees decline in employment
Effects from Japan disasters on auto industry could mean Ohio has greater share of 5,000-job national loss
Story by DAWN EINSEL


 

For the first time in seven or eight months, manufacturing nationally has seen a decline in employment. A report from the Alliance for American Manufacturing shows a loss of 5,000 jobs during the month of May.  

Daniel Berry, president and CEO of Northeast Ohio’s Manufacturing Advocacy and Growth Network, attributes the decline to the high price of oil and a stagnant construction industry. But he says another factor may have hurt Ohio more than other states.

Honda’s North American manufacturing is based in central Ohio. GM and other U.S. car makers also have said they’ve slowed production because of trouble getting parts from Japan.

State-by-state employment numbers will be released later this month.

The national report shows that the overall unemployment rate is back up to 9.1 percent, a slight increase from April’s 8.7 percent.
