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?
Monroe County Manufacturers, participate in MFG Day 2018! Open your doors and open the minds of your future workforce. Show them the exciting careers that exist in their backyards.
We have a team which includes the BDC, Monroe County Intermediate School District, teachers and business representatives, who will work together to make this event a success. And, to say the least, this event would not be possible without the participation of our Monroe County manufacturing businesses.
Contact LuAnn Hogberg for more information and to join the list of Monroe County manufacturers who are participating in our county’s 3rd MFG Day on October 5, 2018.
