Steep, ten-year decline of Wisconsin manufacturing jobs

Between 2000 and 2010 and the two recessions book-ending that dismal decade, the manufacturing industry in Wisconsin lost more than 1 in 4 of its jobs, falling to 429,500 from its level of 594,400. That’s 164,900 vanished opportunities for workers to find steady, sustaining employment even if in many cases they don’t have a four-year college degree.
