About Champions of Manufacturing Program
On June 18, the California Manufacturers & Technology Association launched our new Champions of Manufacturing program, designed to boost the image of California manufacturing and convince policymakers that manufacturing is the single best way to grow California’s economy and create vital high-wage jobs.
For too long California policymakers have perceived manufacturing as part of a 20th Century economic model that doesn’t fit California’s 21st Century business culture and that knowledge-based firms should be the priority focus for growth. Too many Californians view manufacturing as dirty factories with unpleasant workplaces. And for too long, we have focused on the many challenges to manufacturing in California and have missed the opportunity to celebrate California’s amazing manufacturing abundance.
