Manufacturing Journalist TR Cutler Looks at Solution Finders for the Manufacturing Skilled Labor Shortage

Manufacturing journalist TR Cutler is writing a new 12-part series about companies that are innovating solutions to address the skilled labor shortage in the manufacturing sector. 

According to Cutler, the past few years have seen a significant imbalance between the number of available job openings in manufacturing in comparison to people available to fill them. While unemployment is currently very low, the manufacturing sector’s number one struggle is finding skilled workers for their factory floors, an issue that is expected to continue for years to come, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and National Association of Manufacturers (NAM). 

Vendors who have interesting and innovative solutions to the skilled labor shortage should contact Cutler.
