Getting Right To It On Manufacturing

Will we convince a new generation that manufacturing is their future career or not? The answer holds the key to this most vital sector of our economy--manufacturing.

That's the point of a recent International Business Times article titled "US Manufacturing Jobs Begin The Long March Back From China (And Elswhere)."

The summation is here after a quote talking about the current skills mismatch in the economy:

"And how it resolves itself will probably be determined by whether younger Americans follow their grandparents’ lead in developing pride and interest in U.S. manufacturing . . . while Americans considered manufacturing to be the second most important industry in the economy, behind energy, and the most important industry for job creation, they ranked it near the bottom as a career choice."
