Nearly every corner of the manufacturing industry has been rocked by both a global pandemic and record-breaking inflation. Combined with fluctuating demand levels, supply chain interruptions, and ongoing labor shortages, it’s the perfect storm of hurdles and challenges.
According to the latest data from the Labor Department's JOLT database, there were 860,000 unfilled manufacturing jobs in March 2022. The average age for manufacturing workers is 44, and they’re retiring faster than they’re being replaced. The current labor shortage plaguing American manufacturers is a long term and permanent issue.
