Are manufacturing jobs important to rural economies?

May 12, 2015 By Steve Glidewell

That might sound like a trick question, of course factory jobs are critical to the foundation of a strong middle class.  But they are even more critical in rural America. The growth of industrial farming and the resulting decline of the family farm have made the availability of good paying industrial jobs much more critical.

As a small business owner and CEO I know firsthand what these jobs mean to my community. We at Elite are working hard to create new products and enter into new markets to provide an opportunity for growth in our local market.
