US manufacturing growing steadily
Kiplinger
U.S. manufacturing continues to step it up, with another solid gain in output this year — 3.5 percent or better. Nearly five years after the Great Recession ended, it continues to outpace the rate of overall GDP growth. New business and goods-out-the-door are up. There's more optimism and more hiring. For seven months in a row, the number of factory jobs has increased. By year-end, 100,000 more workers will be added to payrolls. There's growth in every region of the country, and it's cutting across a swath of industries.
