Massachusetts is expected to see 100,000 manufacturing jobs over the next decade or about 10,000 manufacturing jobs per year said Northeastern University Professor and economist Barry Bluestone at the MetroWest Chamber of Commerce Exec-Connect luncheon Thursday. 

Speaking before 70 MetroWest business and government leaders at the Sheraton Hotel, Bluestone said manufacturing is the sixth largest employer in the Commonwealth, and nationally is leading the recovery out of this recession.

Bluestone oversaw a study on the state of the manufacturing in Massachusetts whch was conducted by the University's Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy.

The study showed the Massachusetts has always been at the forefront of manufacturing even when Detroit was the auto king; and the Commonwealth is expected to continue that trend, after hitting bottom a few years ago, in regards to job loss.
