Cincinnati, OH – Manufacturing is crucial to Ohio's economy, and yet the state has shed more than 240,000 factory jobs since 2000. In an effort to reconcile the problem, a group of trade experts, labor leaders, and lawmakers gather today to discuss strategies to rebuild the manufacturing sector.

It's part of a series of town hall meetings across the country, entitled, "Keep it Made in America," where the focus is on moving manufacturing into the future. Scott Paul, executive director of the Alliance for American Manufacturing, says myriad challenges face the industry, including the trade deficit, changes in the healthcare system, and what he sees as unbalanced trade policies.

"These challenges are too important to be ignored this election. We're going to talk about how we can promote good, clean-energy jobs and re-grow the manufacturing base, so that our children have job opportunities, even if they aren't planning to get a Masters degree or a Ph.D."

Teresa McHugh, who represents the Sierra Club and the Blue-Green Alliance it cosponsors, says today's event also will focus on the potential for investment in a "green" economic recovery plan, building companies and products in the clean-energy and clean-technology fields that are in demand worldwide.

"This provides a real opportunity to talk about where we can go, in producing a green economy that will create manufacturing jobs."

Today's event begins at 6:30 p.m. at Frisch's Theater at the Cincinnati Zoo.
