Youngstown posts largest gain in manufacturing in US

Published: Thu, September 16, 2010 @ 1:39 a.m.


Although the city’s economic performance remains one of the worst among the nation’s largest metropolitan areas, Youngstown has shown signs of economic recovery last quarter, posting the largest gain in manufacturing employment in the country.

Youngstown’s manufacturing employment jumped by 8.9 percent in the second quarter of 2010, the nation’s largest gain in that sector, according to a report released by the Brookings Institution this week.

The report, which tracks the economic recession and recovery in the 100 largest U.S. metro areas, showed that the Youngstown area also saw one of the nation’s sharpest declines in unemployment between June 2009 and June 2010. The jobless rate in the Youngstown-Warren-Boardman metro area dropped 1.6 percentage point in that period.

For the complete story, read Thursday's Vindicator or Vindy.com.

Really?!? You two want to jump up and down over a few blue collar jobs that never should have been lost to start with? Then you want to pat the party on the back that destroyed this area and credit them with Rhea gains?!?!? The same party that has corrupted this valley and chicago?!?!

Its the right wing meatheads that make me nauseous. What makes them think anyone wants to hear their take on politics on the internet? Go talk amongst yourselves and dont think we that have a brain are going to agree with you. Remember before the internet when a face to face conversation got you called a moron?

Great short term news. However, I would like to see what these manufacturing jobs are. Are they high quality manufacturing? (See jobs that are last to be outsourced) or low quality, temp labor. In reality, we need more white collar jobs, most manufacturing work is a crutch as of now until later generations of Americans get both college and graduate degrees. Also, the devil may be in the details as the valley has been in double-digit unemployment for a while now and has been losing working age citizens for over 25 years. I want to see a rebound but assembly line jobs will only buy time until we find a niche industry to drive sustained employment.

You have it correct. With the way that manufacturing has been demolished in Youngstown, it's not difficult to achieve a one-time large percentage bump. If only 100 men are working and 15 new jobs are created, it is a 15% increase. Don't get me wrong, it is good news but we need many quarters of large increases. Hopefully this is the first effect from the increased drilling activity in the Marcellus shale field. This could be huge!

Good point walter!

Vindy, do some research and see if these are really long term jobs and not something that will be temporary.

Oh Wally_ Slobshak

You apoplectic imbecile,..

Here again you're even more ridiculous than " redskirt " and nuttier than the deplorably dumb db2 that just surfaced,.. HOW PROFOUND !!!

I mean how fitting that such GREAT NEWS for the valley and the nation. Just so happens to be something that has the super stupidest simpletons, like you and your calamity clowns complaining,.. you failure driven freak.

That Marcellus shale drilling has nothing to do with it and what they're prospecting isn't " Manufacturing " you diabolic drunkard.

Those whooping nation leading increase numbers is from the Obama administration democratic impact working with Ohio representatives Sherrod Brown, Tim Ryan and Jay Williams.

Your display of bad math alleging some only 100 job's and 15 new jobs to mark that spike. Is as laughable as your gaffe laden existence.

You're the epitome of what sensible people refuse to align with trying proclaim area success is diminished failure. There's no way in Hell you can screw that up you manically moronic know nothing Neanderthals.

Where as an American that only wants progressive legislators in office. I would have embraced this GREAT NEWS no matter what party made it happen.

But the FACT is your republican Teabaggers faction had 8 years prior destroying it. Thus this GREAT NEWS that the non-republican leadership is producing. Is marking one hell of a positive difference in how production reverses destruction

You're lying and crying because you HATE that every sensible being on earth can see who means them any good,.. and we're NOT republicans.

Wow, Nunya,

Did Mom let you back on the computer or did you finally escape fromthe men with the white coats. I can't ever remember being called apoplectic before. C'mon, you can do better than that!

As a degreed engineer, my math skills are impeccable! The figures used are demonstrative and simple enough that someone with a questionable intellect, such as yourself, could easily do without a calculator.

Yes, the Marcellus shale field drilling has a lot to do with it. Please leave your winkie alone for a few minutes and try to understand. V&M Tube will be expanding its MANUFACTURING capacity in response to the increase in order for the small diameter tube that is used by drilling rigs. Demming Pumps constructed a new building addition and hired additional staff to construct and service pumps that are used in the drilling industry. Exal Aluminum has increased its manufacturing capacity to produce aluminum bottles used for containing beer that is manufactured in the US and is consumed by the manufacturing workers!

Unfortunately, I violated the very rule I espouse to just ignore you but we are all sinners! As you slither off again to your room in Mom's basement to resume sitting in your underwear counting the nuts in your "Mr. Goodbar", remember this. I may, at times, resemble the diabolical drunkard you say that I am. But, in the morning, I will be sober. On the other hand, you will still be a non-sensical blowhard and ignoramus of exponential proportions.

I'll tell Mrs. Palin you send your regards!

Oh Wally_ Slobshak

There you go again blowing your own laughable little aimless ad hominem horn again you listlessly bloated buffoon..

See NOTHING you said in that swill of swine squeal pig spit. Neither links, correlates nor substantiates a damn thing you lied about in you hilarious effort to doom this GREAT NEWS.

See the MANUFACTURING grown that's being reported has you in shambles and you took a gamble and or redress I've proved you to merely be a lariat for liars,.. so much for your impeccable engineering fantasy.

See amidst all that non substantive stooge stew you just spewed. Which fittingly entailed your trying to infuse mass production of beer cans as the crux of you foolish fuss.

Be informed that Industrial excavating and prospecting isn't MANUFACTURING you plundered punchline.

Via your world according to Slob_Shack school of stooge. Clearly you'd implore one to believe that coal isn't an earth mineral being extracted in West Virginia.

See by your lack of education or bearing or possessing any sense. That coal is being made / manufactured by mining and by your saying so proves it,.. ROTFFLMAO !!!

Slob_Shack, I and other sensible Americans can't thank you enough for being such the egregious epitome of that republican Teabaggers type of knowledge.

Hell Wally we can all tell that via having minds like yours at the helm of the republicans factions of fruitcakes. Your display of having destroyed the economy and alienated global neighbors.

Was you guys strategic way of merely showing us what could { and did } happen if we don't pay attention. I'm surprised you're not gloating about it and taunting the populous with a mantra that you'd like to do it again.

Which in all actuality IS exactly what you're displaying and saying in your own little special way. It's just it requires those like myself to clarify just how cunning you are as such a clueless quack.

Lastly you don't crack yourself up witless Waldo, you're shattered your repugnant self beyond repair.

See the genius of infusing satire and colorful candor are used as corridors to place capstones on capsized Clowns,.. like I do to those like YOU.

Where in contrast your type of insanity and brand of incompetency disables you any such ability. Thus in that awareness and attempt to posture as such a Titan.

You bring those of my values great pleasure in how easily you're being utilized as such a tool. That's merely affording the exploitation for you to exposed and proven to be such a damned fool.

Good for you Wally,..

By all means pleasurably utilize bowling as therapy. But by all means pay closer attention to the world and don't continue to allow fiction to deprive you of the facts,.. it makes you stupid Walter.

Where not to attempt to pick your friends either. However, as a bit of well wishing advice for your betterment. The problem you're going to have with Scare-em Palin. Is one that if or when you ever try to make sense out of her, or dare think she gives a damn about you or anybody else

You're a dupe in for a bout of dejection. Because that kind of hate waging individual. Only serves to deceive and mislead for personal profit,.. an oral harlot of sorts.

See she's deliberately attacking your vulnerabilities and leading you to believe nobody knows the difference. Where to share a bit with you Walter. What she's doing isn't novel and you're never going to become any smarter nor better off being dumber than her.

See if pocketing personal profit to manipulate others were my values. I could make millions in that pit too. But the difference is I actually even know what the hell I'm talking about and consistently reject those offers and requests,... I whore for no one Walter.

So see to falter to what those like her would go against my values, destroy my personal acceptance and be a willful abuse of my true gifts Walter.

See I genuinely respect and care about others and thus I utilize what gifts I've been given. As a benefit for others as well as that of myself,.. it's called a meaningful life.

Which means that I'm so wealthy in truth, spirit and embracing a selfless accord with others. That I'm respectfully appreciative for mankind and the gifts they possess too.

So genuinely and so much so that if I lost everything I materialistically own today or tomorrow. I still wouldn't resort to misleading others to pilfer them as prey.

By aligning with trying to incite discourse and misinformation just for personal profit merely because said others vulnerabilities exists.

Where not to blame your vulnerabilities on her or those like her. But my goodness Walter take a moment to look at what the hell they've prompted you to do to yourself,.. as friends?

You weren't born like that Walter, you were altered to become as mindless as you've displayed yourself to be. Where clearly I didn't do it those you so call friends has you so incapable of what's effortless for others to perform.

See that's not manufacturing, fabrication, make believe nor manipulation. It's a process of sharing natural resources and nurturing abundant growth that we're all to be enriched by,.. and it can't be faked or stolen either Walter.

I don't think most people believe that what you have ar "true gifts". It is more on the realm of a disorder.

Where as usual diamond Jim Waldo, nothing you said makes any sense beyond the boundaries of your planet,.. we earthlings just call em lies.

But you know Wallace with a big time Ballsackian mental process like you've got. I envision your audible inflection as sounding like flatulence with a quirky helium pitch to it,.. you know STRANGE !!!

Which mind you as my being a mere mortal questioning you as a Ballsackian. Can you translate just what a " Neo-Maxi-Zoom-Dweebie " is?,.. just for case study..

See I admit I've never heard the term. Thus it leaves me no idea what plutonium based planet you pulled that one out of your rodent fur pelt from,.. you plastered platypus.

Where if equating you to an earthling. It'd sound like you're on some psychotic drug or strong alcohol based elixir induced stupor. Where in your delusions of grandeur you quirked something else strange up there Quizmo,...LMAO !!!

Just make sure you're no longer giving that stuff to your kinds, you abstain from taking your Bentley or Maybach for a spin,.. K?

To include don't forget to snap that bailing string chin strap on your accent accessory helmet. While wearing your jewels encrusted Armani tailored space suit uniform either,.. way out Waldo.

I bet your glitzy whip is so hip it makes the space shuttle look like a cheap import. Your sound system got's to be so " wit it " it'd beat the acoustics at Carnegie hall

To include that chariot with chinchilla seats rumbles so humble it sounds like the Jetsons when you zip down the Boulevard there moon pie,.. ROTFFLMAO !!!

No need to worry ! Your taxes are due to rise and you will feel much better .



Tax Brackets
EGTRRA created six tax rate brackets--10%, 15%, 25%, 28%, 33% and 35%, based on income levels. If no extension is passed and signed into law, then the pre-2001 tax rates will go back into effect starting in tax year 2011. The 10% bracket would disappear, and those taxpayers would move up to the 15% bracket, which would apply to all incomes below $34,550. The other tax rates would increase to 28%, 31%, 36% and 39.6% for the highest earners making more than $379,650.

Child Tax Credit
One major provision that will expire at the end of 2010 is the child tax credit, which EGTRRA doubled from $500 to $1,000 per child. Unless Congress votes to extend the child tax credit, the maximum amount will revert back to $500 for tax year 2011, and the number of families eligible for that amount will be much less as tougher eligibility standards that existed prior to EGTRRA will go back into effect.

Stupid Stanley,..

Stop the lying you lying loon,..

Forbes is a print based Bullskit bassoon for fraud job bankers and ponzie artists. That's went full bore in playing to the Teabaggers propaganda agenda. That has proven to be a publication that's lost all sense of credibility.

Not only are taxes NOT going up like the LIE you're trying to spread. But those fudged numbers " by forbes " is a shame,.. http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/5...

The tax revision will revert BACK to what they were for those making over $250 thousand a year. That was established before boy Bush and the republican used their reign to ruin the economy,..FACT !!!

Check this OTHER " forbes " formed lie on president Obama,.. http://voices.washingtonpost.com/howa...

See via history " forbes " also pushed sham scam ENRON and MCI stock as blue chip status. Right before they both fleeced their investors for billions,.. what a reputable rag huh?

They were also trumpeting Layman brothers and others as secure and touting Realtor investments on the cusp of the sub prime mortgage fraud meltdown,.. THEY TRICKED HONEST PEOPLE !!!

Solely about how easily I dismantle their efforts to force feed their foolish falsehoods,..

I merely presented FACTS to obliterate your fiction and your inability to respond is noted by the populous.

The likes and lies of stooge Slob_Shack,.. stupid Stanley,.. ridiculous rudypoot,.. the reprobate redskirt,.. dumb db,..DJ is a Colon served as mere appetizers here


Where I'm sure you've heard of the proverbial October surprise in political speak. However, you've seen nothing yet and we Truth tellers are starting this serving in September,.. alarming huh.

For which you're going to lay prey and bear witness to how myself and a number of true American colleagues.

Whom are going to carve your lying craft and quack variety candidate up. So decisively that you dummies are going to get drubbed at the ballots.

Which means we're merely going to unleash a Truth and Facts display. That will deliver an immense victory in these midterms. So profoundly that it will more than boggle your inferior and indigent little thought box's.

Now having duly informed you lets have the FACTS filed festivities begin. Which as I see it, it's sure to continue to be a fun filled Feast !!!

Where in just a few short months engaging here. I've already discredited every lying clown that perched in attempt to litter the landscape with LIES,.. they're now reduced to JOKES !!!

Where although I'm a national figure whom hails from Youngstown. I've come to the realization that to expose the big picture. It's not unwise for one to engage the populous of small towns and cities too,.. and this Valley matters to me.

2010 election will be a turning point in politics. Political control in state governments is key to long term success as new district lines will be getting drawn soon in response to US Census data. Obviously, for Ohio, the republicans will have the control.
