Did you know that in the United States, nine percent of the nation’s workforce has a manufacturing job?
Or that eight percent of the nation’s GDP comes from manufactured goods?
Or that the 12.3 million people who work in manufacturing make 12 percent more than the average job–an average of $81,000 (including benefits)?
Manufacturing Month, which takes place in October, is meant to celebrate these facts, along with one of the most important sectors in the United States economy. It’s also meant to spread awareness of the manufacturing industry, especially the fact that while there are millions of unemployed Americans, the manufacturing industry is short of skilled workers and looking for those who want well-paying and stable jobs in an exciting, growing and extremely diverse field.
