"Now that China has all the money, it's time to give it back," joked Peter French, the owner of French Color and Fragrance, a company that works with Chesapeake Bay Candle.

It's a sentiment President Obama spoke about today during his press conference.

"We can't afford to have labor and management fighting all the time, at a time when we're competing against Germany and China and other countries that want to sell goods all around the world," he said. "There are more steps that we can take right now that would help businesses create jobs here in America. Today, our administration is trying to take those steps."

And it will take lots of steps: 2.3 million manufacturing jobs have been lost since the economic crash. So far just 240,000 have come back.
