Over the last year, reports show that, within the US, approximately 424,000 jobs were created in the manufacturing sector.  It is no secret that within the manufacturing industry today, many challenges exist.  Stephen Roach, an economics professor at Yale University said that "there's been a dramatic shift due to automation, machine productivity and the shifting of jobs to China and other countries with lower input costs."  In addition, an aging workforce and the upcoming younger generation, rarely interested in a career within manufacturing, make it difficult to hire and retain employees.

However, because of efforts, such as Manufacturing Day, there are glimpses of change and hope for a bright future.

This Friday, October 5, is Manufacturing Day, a nationally recognized holiday to celebrate the manufacturing industry.  Manufacturing Day is designed to amplify the voice of individual manufacturers and coordinate a collective chorus of manufacturers with common concerns and challenges. MFG Day has been held annually on the first Friday in October since its introduction in 2012 and aims to inspire the next generation of manufacturers and offer them a path toward a future in the industry.
