1,100 WV MANUFACTURING JOBS JUST LOST - Joining The Tens Of Thousands Already Globalized

(10/15/2015)

By Bob Weaver

West Virginia has lost tens of thousands of jobs being globalized to other countries over the last 2O years, including several thousand in the Mid-Ohio Valley/Central WV regions.

A new report shows West Virginia has lost another 1,100 manufacturing jobs over the past year.

The primary talking point for globalization was that companies could no longer afford unionized workers, and that Americans would have access to cheaper products.

In this region, even the lowest paying manufacturing jobs, at least 10,000, have been globalized.

The corporations and national politicos of both parties, supporting the so-called free market and trickle down economics, said this would be good for American workers.

WV's largest employer was the steel industry, now it's WalMart.
