Dallas-Fort Worth added 5,800 manufacturing jobs in June.

This represents a 2.1-percent employment increase from June 2017 to June 2018. While that rate is among the best in the nation, it's down from six months ago when the Dallas Business Journal examined the manufacturing sectors of the country's 15 largest metropolitan areas.
