The Engineering Shortage in Manufacturing: 800K+ Open Jobs
Manufacturing is one of the most important industries in the United States. It’s responsible for creating goods and products that people use every day. However, despite the critical nature of this industry, there are currently over 800,000 open manufacturing jobs in the USA.
In particular, companies are faced with a shortage of skilled labor as manufacturing positions requiring experience and talent are harder to fill.
However, this isn’t a new problem for the manufacturing industry. The engineering shortage in the USA began several years ago and, according to a report put out by The Manufacturing Institute and Deloitte, the sector will experience a manufacturing shortage in excess of two million employees over the coming decade.
