Middle River Aircraft Systems will hire 200 people at its eastern Baltimore County plant during the next year to build brake systems for a redesigned jet that aircraft developer Boeing will soon bring to market. The additional jobs will raise the number of employees at the 1.7 million-square-foot plant to 1,000 at a time when most companies are still wary about hiring even as the economy shows signs of bottoming out. The planned hirings are a bright spot for the state's embattled manufacturing sector, which had been slowly deteriorating years before the recession hit. "This shows that companies like Middle River that really know how to embrace next-generation manufacturing can have job growth," said Mike Galiazzo, executive director of the Regional Manufacturing Institute.

My mother went into paid work soon after my father's clothing store was flooded out in a hurricane, almost wiping him out. She had no choice. We needed the money. This was some two decades before a tidal wave of wives and mothers went into paid work. For the relatively few women with four-year college degrees, this change was the consequence of wider educational opportunity and new laws against gender discrimination that opened professions to well-educated women. But the vast majority of women entered the paid workforce because male wages were dropping.

After six decades of doing business in California, Toyota is moving its North American headquarters to Texas. That means 3,000 of the carmaker's jobs will be leaving Torrance and going to Plano, perhaps convincing California officials they should stop Texas Gov. Rick Perry at the border the next time he attempts to come to the Golden State for another raid on businesses. Toyota's surprise relocation will throw more gasoline on the burning argument about which state is a better economic model for the nation. California and Texas, two giant, powerhouse states that could stand on their own among the world's biggest economies, are seen as the perfect contrast between a high-regulation blue state and a low regulation red state.
