Boston was among 92 of the nation's 100 biggest labor markets to have lost manufacturing jobs during the past five years.
The city's loss of 24,600 manufacturing jobs since 2004 ranked as the 10th most among the metros surveyed. The cumulative loss for those markets has been 1.17 million manufacturing jobs since 2004, according to a bizjournals.com analysis of newly released data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The only jobs that will be left in this country will be low paying part time service jobs if the government doesn't change the way they are going. I feel this is the plan for the government to get everyone dependent on them for every service. What good is it to prolong unemployment benefits. Seems to me if we lowered taxes and stopped regulating companies they might stay in this country and start hiring again. In many cases you do not have health insurance because you lost your job and are unable to find another.
