More Manufacturing Jobs to Come to New Jersey
Manufacturing jobs are on the rise in New Jersey, as evidenced by Granted.com numbers and
BLS unemployment statistics.
PASADENA, CA (PRWEB) November 29, 2012 -- While people all across the country struggle to find work,
there’s an anticipated increase in manufacturing positions in New Jersey on the horizon. Tekni-Plex, a
packaging and tubing manufacturer, expects to add more jobs thanks to a $9 million upgrade to its facility in
Raritan Township. While this may seem like a localized event, it’s indicative of broader trends as job numbers
at Granted.com points out. The job search site shows hundreds of new manufacturing jobs in New Jersey alone,
with 13,000 positions spread across the entire country.
This seems to be validated by numbers released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which showed the
unemployment rate dropped between August and September of this year from 7.3-percent to 6.7-percent in the
manufacturing industry. While not a huge drop, it’s significant enough to draw parallels to the Granted.com
numbers. In fact, it’s not just a coincidence. According to Granted.com’s CEO, A. Harrison Barnes, this is a
trend the site has been noticing for some time. “Manufacturing jobs are on the rise in the U.S. no matter what
other reports may say,” he says. “It’s just a matter of time before new jobs become available in a wider scope.”
The job search engine provides listings from all across the country. While it may just seem like a site for people
to find work, it actually provides an up to the minute look at the economy. The listings reflect how many job
openings are available for each industry, giving job seekers a much more accurate picture of how their line of
work is fairing than broad surveys or statistical reports.
In this case, a job search is much more than a job search. When compared to the addition of manufacturing jobs
in New Jersey and the BLS unemployment numbers, the abundance of new manufacturing jobs on Granted.com
speaks volumes for the industry. “We hope this is a real turning point,” says Barnes, “and all indicators are
pointing toward this being the case.”
Granted.com is a job search site based in Pasadena, CA. It’s a part of the Employment Research Institute and
owned by A. Harrison Barnes.
