How the workforce changed since the Great Recession began - Pew Research Center
Here are five ways in which the U.S. workforce has changed since the onset of the Great Recession. (It’s worth noting that, in many cases, the slump intensified or accelerated longer-term trends that already were underway. Also, in order to highlight changes, in most cases we compare the most recent available economic data points with those in December 2007, when the economy started its big slowdown.)

The New American Heartland: Renewing the Middle Class by Revitalizing the Heartland - Newgeography.com
The greatest test America faces is whether it can foster the kind of growth that benefits and expands the middle class. To do so, the United States will need to meet three challenges: recover from the Great Recession, rebalance the American and international economies, and gain access to the global middle class for the future of American goods and services.

These Charts Show There's More to U.S. Factory Gains Than Autos - Bloomberg
Details of the Fed’s industrial production report showed the April improvement extended beyond autos. Output of consumer goods rose the most since November 2014. Ditto for the production of business equipment. In fact, output excluding the auto industry rose the most in three years, a figure that bodes well for the durability of the manufacturing improvement.

Manufacturing jobs are returning to some places. But these jobs are different. - Washington Post
The nation shed manufacturing jobs at a steady pace over most of the last quarter century. A combination of trade deals, automation and economic recessions sent the number of manufacturing jobs plummeting, with 6 million jobs being lost by 2011.

But since then, about half a million jobs have been regained.

They’re not the same jobs that left. They're not coming back everywhere, or even in the same places where jobs were lost. The map of where products are made in this country is being redrawn.

The region, which includes Riverside and San Bernardino counties, also has been buoyed in recent years by retail giant Amazon, which has leased massive warehouses that require packagers and truckers to transport those packages.

Can – and Should – Western Manufacturing be Saved? - Supply Chain Digest
As a quick note, The "and should" part of these titles came from some legitimate questions as to whether the US and other Western economies were simply headed down a "post manufacturing" economic path, with the ability to compete on a low cost world stage certainly in question. And with the added question of whether a future of low-skill, repetitive manufacturing work is really what is wanted. Maybe Western countries would be better off to just to dispense with the idea and move on.

Joel Kurtzman’s Case for Economic Optimism - strategy+business
Because of factory automation and robotics, North American productivity is staggering. The U.S. produces about seven times as much factory output per employee as China does. To be sure, this is tough for individuals. Factory workers need a minimum of two years of college, and ideally four years. But because productivity has grown faster than wages, labor in North America is not much more expensive than in Asia. There is still a lot of room to pay workers more, which would be very helpful for resolving income inequality.

The Great Recession created some of the toughest employment conditions that American workers experienced in the postwar period. The economy overall shed 8.7 million jobs in 2008 and 2009, and the unemployment rate reached a 25-year high of 10 percent in 2009. That year, more than 14 million Americans were looking for work but unable to find it, more than double the number before the recession started.

A serious federal commitment to R&D would help arrest the long-term decline in manufacturing, and return America to its preeminent and competitive positions in high tech. At the same time, increasing sales of these once-key exports abroad would improve our also-declining balance of trade. It’s the best shot the U.S. has to energize its weak economic recovery.

Are U.S. manufacturing jobs coming back or has manufacturing “renaissance” peaked? --Stateline
While the new high-tech interests are encouraging, the reality is that the number of U.S. manufacturing jobs overall stopped climbing in July 2012. Since then, the number of U.S. manufacturing jobs, while fluctuating slightly, has been stalled at the 11.9 million range, federal data show. This raises important questions: Are expectations that U.S. manufacturing is poised for a “renaissance” unfounded and has the U.S. manufacturing comeback already peaked?

How Communities Can Beat the Jobless Recovery - Intelligent Community Forum (ICF)
According to a June 2011 study from the McKinsey Global Institute, the “jobless recovery” may be America’s new reality. From the end of the last World War through the 1980s, it took an average of 6 months for employment to recover from recession. But after the 1990-91 downturn, it took 15 months. After the “dotcom recession” of 2001, it took 39 months. If recent trends continue, it could take 60 months – five years – for employment to recover from the 2008-10 recession.
