Based on reports from a recent Deloitte survey we discussed in Part 1 of our Blog Series on Labor and Skills, there is a labor shortage problem and it’s hitting the manufacturing industry just as hard as hospitality.
According to the same study by Deloitte and The Manufacturing Institute, as many as 2.1 million manufacturing jobs will go unfilled through 2030. The report warns us that this could cost the US Economy up to $1 Trillion dollars over the same period.
Carolyn Lee, Executive Director of The Manufacturing Institute states, “We have a perception problem. People don’t know the jobs are here or that these are jobs they want.”
Moreover, this crisis is occurring at a time when US manufacturing activity recently surged to a 37-year high (March 2021). The business is there. Are you prepared?
