    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- President Obama last week promised a boom in manufacturing and 1 million new jobs if he is reelected.

    But is the boom for real? For high-paying, skilled manufacturing jobs, it just might be.

    The number of job openings for skilled factory workers has increased 38% since 2005, according to numbers from the Conference Board that measure labor demand across industries.

    More strikingly, the sharpest increase in postings for skilled workers -- 152% -- has occurred in the last three or so years.

    Among the states where demand is the highest for skilled workers are Ohio, Michigan, Texas, California, Illinois and Indiana, according to the Conference Board.

    Hot looking blonde at link.

    Odd how there's no mention of oil and gas industry jobs. I guess Obama doesn't consider that "manufacturing".

    That oil industry is a "dinosaur", forgive the pun. :lol:

    America is beginning the transition away from oil, it may take a while, but we will get there. Expect the jobs to reflect that as time goes on.

    I have no doubt there will be a manufacturing boom if Obama is relected... Unfortunately, it will be in China.

    That's nice. Lots of job opening for 'skilled' workers, with no 'skilled' workers to fill them... and you translate that into a plus for Obama?

    You are truly insane.

    In the real world.

    US manufacturing down for third month - FT.com

    The US manufacturing sector contracted for the third straight month in August, the longest slide since the recession ended, in line with recent data showing a pullback in business spending.
    The Institute for Supply Management said its manufacturing index declined to 49.6, the lowest level since July 2009. That followed readings of 49.8 in July and 49.7 in June and came in below expectations of 50. A reading below 50 indicates contraction.

    This is the real world, rather than the democrat created myth world.

    So, now it is Obama's fault that our kids cannot afford to go to college to get those "skills"?
