“Manufacturers in the United States need to fill 4 million jobs by 2030, according to a workforce study by The Manufacturing Institute and Deloitte. More than half of those jobs could be left unfilled because of two issues: a skills gap and misperceptions about modern manufacturing.” MFG Day is focused events to promote manufacturing to students, parents, and educators for the first Friday in, and throughout, the month of October.
It is no secret that there is a labor shortage and skills gap in the United States. Manufacturers have felt this pain for years. Manufacturing Day is presented by the National Association of Manufacturers and the Manufacturing Institute. The website features many resources on how to attract talent and change the perception of manufacturing.
