Manufacturing Ohio

We hear a lot of bad news about manufacturing in Ohio - but it's not dead yet. A recent study found Ohio is still among the most competitive states for manufacturing. On The Sound of Ideas, what a local advocacy group is doing to publicize and train people for career opportunities in manufacturing - from plastics to ball bearings. Also, we'll hear about job training in the skilled trades, too. You're a part of the conversation, so be sure to join us Monday morning at nine on 90.3.Skilled Trades/Mfg - John Kilbane, business manager, Building Laborers Local 310; Kelly Kupcak, Policy Initiatives Coordinator, Hard Hatted Women. Manufacturing Jobs - Stephen Gage, president, MAGNET; Charles Vermerris, CEO, Radix Wire.
