(PDF PDF icon)

Manufacturing employment declined significantly during the most recent recession. From the recession’s beginning in March 2001 until December 2001 (which many economists consider its end), U.S. manufacturing suffered a net loss of more than 1 million jobs, or 5.7% of all jobs that existed in the industry when the recession began.
