James Schlies, vice president for economic development for the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said even though the paper industry -- struggling with its overcapacity -- isn't adding jobs, manufacturing in general is growing in the Fox Cities.Many companies are adding workers and have been since the fourth quarter of last year.
...
Schlies said that in the Appleton/Oshkosh/ Neenah Metropolitan Statistical Area, about 10,000 manufacturing jobs, or more than 17 percent, were lost during the 1999-2003 period, bringing that job total to about 46,500.
...
And the sunny side for manufacturers is the skilled labor supply is plentiful, unlike what it was during a growth period about seven years ago, according to Schlies.
He said having enough workers, perhaps for several years, is a boon for long-term economic growth because that pesky skilled-worker shortage isn't in the way.
"It's not going to be a wet blanket on this rebound that it started to be back then," he said.
