Your Day to Open Doors & Open Minds
A recent study by the Manufacturing Institute and Deloitte revealed that more than 8 out of 10 Americans acknowledge the importance of the manufacturing industry but less than one-third of those surveyed would encourage their children to pursue a manufacturing career due to concerns around job security and stability, weak career paths, and poor pay.As anyone close to the modern manufacturing industry knows, these concerns couldn’t be further from reality!
So what can you do?
First off, know the facts:
- The average tenure of workers in the manufacturing industry is highest among all private sector industries at 9.1 years.
- Modern manufacturing also has one of the lowest employee turnover rates among all private-sector jobs at 2.3 percent.
- The average manufacturing worker in the U.S. earns almost $20,000 more than the average employee working in other industries.
Second, don’t forget to participate in Manufacturing Day — your chance to show students, parents, educators, and your community what modern manufacturing really looks like!
Join the National Association of Manufacturers, the Manufacturing Institute, and thousands of manufacturers across the country this year by hosting an event to inspire more young people to join the manufacturing team!
