"The irony of the recession is that while manufacturing employment is picking up, a lot of the old jobs aren't. Employers are demanding new skills from those they hire."
-- Ross Meyer, executive director of the non-profit Greater Cincinnati Workforce Network, in an interview with The Cincinnati Enquirer for a story today about a rise in manufacturing employment. The story is part of a jobs series running across Gannett newspaper and broadcast sites, and driven by Corporate to promote GCI's CareerBuilder subsidiary. Here's another irony: Two days after the Enquirer laid off 20 employees, the paper apparently still hasn't reported the downsizing to its own readers.
