WHY is there a Manufacturing Day?
Modern manufacturing environments are commonly thought of as dark, dangerous factories designed for low-skilled workers. Manufacturing Day addresses this misperception by giving all manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show, in a coordinated effort, what manufacturing really is in this day and age:
• Manufacturing is technologically advanced, with ample use of automation, 3-D printing, robots, and screen technology.
• The annual average salary of manufacturing workers is more than $77,000.
• Manufacturers have the highest job tenure in the private sector.
• 90 percent of manufacturing workers have medical benefits.
WHO should attend Manufacturing Day events?
Manufacturing Day events are meant for anyone who is curious about modern manufacturing and who would like to know more about what happens in modern-day manufacturing facilities. This includes students, parents, educators, media, civic leaders, and local communities in general.
