Economic commentators are catching on to the story manufacturers have been sharing for a while: In 2018, manufacturers were the stars of the U.S. economy. Our industry had the best year for job creation in more than two decades, adding an average of 22,000 jobs every month—bringing the total number of American manufacturing workers to more than 12.8 million.
Powered by tax reform and regulatory certainty, manufacturers spent the year keeping our promise to secure those tools and invest in our people. In addition to hiring new workers, manufacturers also raised wages and benefits and invested in new operations and new equipment. Reflecting the historic nature of 2018, the National Association of Manufacturers’ Outlook Survey, which has tracked manufacturers’ sentiment for 20 years, hit a new record of optimism.
Manufacturers entered 2019 with strong momentum, and now we expect the growth and hiring to continue. We have challenges, to be sure, and know there will always be bumps along the way—but the skeptics and naysayers have it wrong when they question the strength of modern manufacturing in America. In reality, manufacturers wish we could hire skilled workers even faster. There just are not enough of them.
We need skilled workers—and we need them now. In addition to men and women who create things with their hands, this includes coders, programmers, technicians, designers and other jobs that require some degree of specialized training….
The illegals Pelousee & Chuck the Shmuck want to flood the U.S. with are illiterate disease-carrying perpetual welfare scabs ( reliable dem voters, tho ). They’re not a source for skilled workers. And the shortage we have now is because of the dumbing down of the public school centers of leftist indoctrination, due to dems policies. The bottom line, everything that benefits the U.S. is due to conservatives – everything damaging comes via the communist leftist hate America first liars.
The policies of our great President Donald J. Trump are really great for the future of American citizens.
