US manufacturing grows for fifth straight month - Paycheck

US manufacturing grows for fifth straight month

U.S. manufacturing has expanded now for five consecutive months. The Institute for Supply Management (they study/track this kind of stuff) reported that new orders and production grew in September, though at a slower pace compared to earlier years. As a matter of fact, economists have forecast that the U.S. economy will shrink about 4% in 2020. It would be the first annual decline in GDP since a drop of 2.5% in 2009 during the recession triggered by the 2008 financial crisis.

So, even though the national economy might be going through fits and starts to rebound, it's a good sign that manufacturing is continuing to grow because Michigan is strong in this area.

Made in Michigan is our strength!
