Maintaining the "American Way of Life"

The number of jobs for skilled workers is on the rise in the US manufacturing industry. In April there were 25,000 more jobs than the previous year and almost a million from 2010 according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics.  

Eight in 10 Americans feel manufacturing is vital to maintaining the "American Way of Life". Over the next 10 years, the U.S. will need to fill approximately 3.5 million manufacturing jobs, yet, it is estimated that there will be a talent shortage of two million skilled workers, according to a recent study from Deloitte and The Manufacturing Institute.  

Creating a strong skilled workforce is key to reshoring and the country’s manufacturing growth. USA Today cites that some 265,000 jobs have been re-shored in the past five years from cheap labor countries like China and India and that number will continue to grow as new high tech processes makes reshoring possible.

Manufacturing is central to a vibrant economy. America needs a coordinated effort between our public educational system, government, and business leaders to provide the proper alignment between jobs and skills development in order to shape our workforce and drive our economy.  Today, manufacturers need workers who either have a technical skill set or possess trade-based skills that machines cannot adequately perform. Obtaining these skills requires a certain level of education – ranging from trade school to apprenticeships.
