Ten of Ohio’s metropolitan areas suffered plunging jobs in manufacturing that are even more severe than for the state as a whole. Over the past seven years Springfield lost 46.9 percent of its manufacturing jobs, Sandusky lost 36.5 percent, SteubenvilleWeirton 31.4 percent, Dayton 31.2 percent, Lima 30.7 percent, Canton 30.6 percent, Youngstown 27.3 percent, Mansfield 25.7 percent, Cleveland 25.2 percent and Columbus lost 24.4 percent.
Even the three areas with less precipitous manufacturing job losses than the state as a whole suffered severe losses. Akron lost 17.5 percent of its manufacturing jobs over the past seven years, Cincinnati lost 18.4 percent and Ohio lost 22.6 percent.
The U.S. lost a record 19.8 percent of its manufacturing jobs over the past seven years. The previous record, before recent years, was the loss of 14.6 percent from the peak of the World War II buildup in 1942 to the depth of the demobilization in 1949.
Record-smashing U.S. manufacturing trade losses (production shortages) totaled over $3.0 trillion over the past seven years as the full current account trade losses reached $4.3 trillion.
Together with the unprecedented loss of total jobs — particularly highly productive/high wage manufacturing jobs — the industries that are creating jobs in Ohio are also of concern. These jobs are almost entirely in less productive, lower-paying industries — including the low end of the “professional and business services” category — that cannot create export earnings to offset the cost of imported oil, autos, computers, clothing, etc. But with rising health care costs a serious obstacle for U.S. businesses and households alike, it is troubling that the vast majority of new jobs in Ohio are in private and public health care bureaucracies.
