One of the bright spots in the American economy right now is coming from the manufacturing sector. According to the Institute for Supply Management’s monthly survey of purchasing and supply executives, activity at U.S. factories has grown at its fastest rate in five months. And in the automobile sector, the growth rate is translating into new jobs.

Carl Van Horn, professor of public policy at Rutgers University and director of the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development, discusses whether this is a sign of long term recovery or only a temporary uptick.
