A recent study that found a net positive gain in U.S. manufacturing jobs for the first time in decades could spell a brighter future for places like western Pennsylvania, with its uptick in natural gas production and a burgeoning technology boom.

According to the Reshoring Initiative 2016 Data Report, reshoring and foreign direct investment by companies that have returned U.S. production or sourcing from offshore brought 77,000 new jobs last year; since 2010, 338,000 jobs have been brought back to the U.S.
