Washington state manufacturing jobs slowly growing, better than peak of recession
Manufacturing jobs took a big dive at the beginning of the recession, with companies trying to save money by shipping manufacturing abroad. But the industry as a whole is making a slow recovery, at least that was the feel at the SmartMap Expo at the TRAC in Pasco, Wash. Gary White, Tri-Cities Development Council director of business retention and expansion, says more than 500 people attended the Pasco event and they had 120 exhibitors for the 10th annual event.
