Manufacturing presents opportunities in the next 6 yearsPosted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on Sept. 25, 2017
Too often high quality manufacturing jobs go unfilled in California because of a variety of issues including lack of training and/or a lack of knowledge about the job's merits. Manufacturing jobs can provide early success, good wages, technical skills, and a pathway to the middle class. We asked the Labor Market Information department to provide their 2024 projections for the top manufacturing non-executive job openings and their wages. For the occupations with more than 2,000 openings here's a look at the top 5 wages and opportunities:
That's more than 31,000 good job opportunities in the next 6 years with an average $42.3k salary. And that's just the manufacturing occupations with more than 2,000 openings. There are hundreds of other occupations with higher wages. It's important for our young workers to understand the opportunity that's available to them and even more critical for our policymakers to understand how important it is to grow manufacturing opportunity here in California.
