The manufacturing industry is very important to the American economy. It is a provider of jobs and goods that the country needs. In recent years there has been a push to promote the importance of manufacturing and make sure that the youth of America know that it is a viable career option. This first led to the creation of Manufacturing Day, which is held on the first Friday of October, which has then grown to celebrating the manufacturing industry all throughout the month of October!
The goal of Manufacturing Day is to celebrate the modern manufacturing industry, and inspire the next generation of manufacturers. Throughout the country events are held at manufacturing facilities where student groups and the public can come in and tour the facility. On these tours they will get to see first-hand the manufacturing process in action, and learn more about what it takes to make a career in the manufacturing industry. With there being a high demand for skilled workers in the manufacturing industry, these events help to show students the future jobs that are available to them. With the population getting older, and more people retiring, it is important that these manufacturing jobs are filled with qualified candidates. Manufacturing Day is one way to bring exposure to the availability of these jobs.
