Manufacturing Day 2019 is Friday, October 4th!
10/01/2019 — Jerry Spelic
PartnerShip is proud to support and celebrate MFG Day 2019!
The first Friday in October, MFG Day was created to show the reality of modern manufacturing and celebrate the large role manufacturing plays in the US economy. Thousands of companies and educational institutions across the country open their doors to students, parents, teachers and community leaders to connect with America’s future creators to create an interest in a career in manufacturing.
PartnerShip is proud to work with many organizations that support and promote manufacturing, such as NTMA, MAPP, PMPA, Manufacturing Works, and many more.
Today’s manufacturing jobs are high-skill and high-tech, but there is still a skilled labor shortage in the manufacturing sector. MFG Day is an opportunity for people, especially students, to learn what modern manufacturing really looks like and to discover that manufacturing offers high-quality and high-paying jobs and career choices. Consider these statistics:
- There are 12.8 million manufacturing workers in the United States. (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics)
- In 2017, the average manufacturing worker in the United States earned $84,832 annually, including pay and benefits. (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics)
- 4.6 million manufacturing jobs will be needed over the next decade. (Source: Deloitte and the Manufacturing Institute)
- Manufacturers in the United States perform 64 percent of all private-sector R&D in the nation, driving more innovation than any other sector. (Source: Bureau of Economic Analysis)
Last year, 275,000 people attended more than 3,000 MFG Day events.
