On the line: Manufacturing in New Hampshire

By New Hampshire Public Radio

Mar 28, 2017

New Call-to-action

Manufacturing jobs were once the cornerstone of the New Hampshire economy, and in turn, the state’s middle class. The assembly lines and factory floors gave workers with limited education—but a willingness to work—an opportunity to earn a livable wage.

But innovation, automation and international trade have erased many of these jobs during the past few decades. For NHPR's three-part series On the Line: Manufacturing in New Hampshire, reporter Todd Bookman explores what’s been lost, would could be regained, and what leaders in the manufacturing sector want to see from their elected officials.
