The loss of manufacturing jobs in Missouri is causing a lot of concern at the Department of Economic Development. Statistics show the the downward trend is hitting all regions of the state. And, Economic DevelopmentDirector Joe Driskill says just about every type of manufacturing business is suffering. Driskill says the national recession is part of the problem.
