Media and politicians are raising the flag for domestic manufacturing.

Domestic manufacturing is all the rage these days. 

First, the Innovation Trail's Daniel Robison filed a story for Morning Edition about the Buffalo shop that sells only American-made goods - right down to the glue in the packaging.  ABC's World News Tonight liked that story so much that last night they checked it out for their "Made in America" series.  And now Albany-area congressman Paul Tonko and Southern Tier congressman Maurice Hinchey are holding events to promote a Democratic "buy American" agenda today.

GE unions vote today on whether or not to kill pensions for new hires, and wage hikes (via Larry Rulison, Times Union).

IBM's willingness to change when confronted by the ebb and flow of technology has helped it join the century club for companies - no mean feat for a technology firm, report Matt Krantz and Jon Swartz at the Press & Sun-Bulletin.

About 600 Rochester-area nonprofits have lost their tax exempt status because they didn't respond to a call by the IRS to renew their credentials reports David Andreatta at the Democrat and Chronicle.  Many of those organizations - like the New York State Table Beet Research Association - are no longer active, but some just missed the boat and now have to hustle to regain their tax-exempt status.
