Now is our chance to do something collectively to make a difference for this industry. High schools, colleges, local chambers of commerce, unions, trade associations, government entities, and manufacturers can work together to propel U.S. manufacturing to the next level. Through individual open houses and plant tours that will take place in cities and towns across the nation, we can show the public what manufacturing really looks like. We can do something to teach young people about interesting, challenging, well-paying jobs they could train for in manufacturing. We can help provide a stream of good, qualified workers our manufacturers so desperately need and help keep more things “Made in America.” We can do something to rally together in support of what has been, and what can always be, the driver of economic vitality and strength in the U.S. Be a part of this effort and sign up by Labor Day to host an open house/plant tour for Manufacturing Day and tell your manufacturing contacts about this great opportunity too.
