U.S. Manufacturing Growth at Odds with Skills Gap


Reading time ( words)

As U.S. manufacturing rebounds after decades of decline, the skills gap will worsen and could lead to more off-shoring, unless it is alleviated. Findings on the Skills Gap in U.S. Electronics Manufacturing, published last month by IPC, found that more than three-quarters of the U.S. electronics manufacturers surveyed anticipate the need to increase the size of their workforces in the next year. The study also found that nearly two-thirds of the companies surveyed would be likely to expand their U.S. operations, instead of expanding outside the U.S., if finding qualified workers were not a concern.
