Manufacturing Matters in America

Manufacturing has been an essential part of this country’s economic progress. According to the Manufacturers Alliance for Productivity and Innovation (MAPI) Foundation, about 1 in 3 jobs and a third of the value of all goods and services produced in the U.S. (GDP) can be tied back to manufactured goods and related processes. And every dollar invested in domestic manufacturing provides $3.60 elsewhere. An example of this positive ripple effect is that for every 10 manufacturing jobs in California, 25 jobs are created in other sectors.

While the benefits of advanced manufacturing to a healthy American economy may be clear, the industry is still facing a shortage of workers with the right skills. The manufacturing skills gap may lead to an estimated 2 million unfilled jobs in the United States over the next decade.
