Skilled Labor Force Needed – Apply Within

Many of the articles and posts I read about the manufacturing industry decry an upcoming lack of skilled workers to fill massive amounts of job openings in the next ten years.  Approximately two million jobs. That's a lot, right?  Here is why many of those jobs will remain unfilled: Perception - Manufacturing is not "glamorous"
