Manufacturing is one of the most important industries in the nation today. Jobs created in the industry help to create other jobs, such as sales and administration. Furthermore, despite the trend of outsourcing to foreign countries, the United State still remains the top manufacturer in the world. But another trend exists in the manufacturing industry. That trend is the aging of the current workforce and shortage of skilled laborers due to the declining interest from young people in pursuing manufacturing careers.
RiteWay recognizes the importance of encouraging the youth to pursue a career in manufacturing, so we created a new page under the tab of “Youth.” This new page is centered around addressing the biases against manufacturing and demonstrating the true value that a career in the field really has. On this page, we have included multiple links to non-profit organizations that educate students about the many opportunities in manufacturing and assist those that are considering a career in the field.
So please, feel free to visit our new page and let us know what you think or share any link you believe would be beneficial to include.
