For the first time in years, the president is listening to concerns and ideas from manufacturers all over the nation. President Trump understands the value of a powerful manufacturing industry. As a result of the industry’s advancements, our country is benefiting globally as a leader in innovation. Every dollar invested in U.S. manufacturing adds another $1.81 to the economy. Additionally, manufacturing supports 18 million American jobs.
However, to keep up with changing technologies, companies must hire workers who have the skill set to meet the needs of new manufacturing jobs. To do so, the new administration and Congress must embrace new approaches to educate and train future manufacturing employees so that they can grow in their careers.
