Notwithstanding the China tariff war and a slowing economy, a lack of skilled / trainable manufacturing talent is the industry’s most pressing and pervasive problem.
According to the DOL*, in November 2019, 388,000 U.S. manufacturing jobs remained open, and jobs within the manufacturing sector will continue to be difficult to fill until manufacturers can demonstrate to young adults that training and pursuing a career in manufacturing is worth their time, talents and return-on-investment.
