Cynthia Bowers, a CBS News correspondent based in Chicago, has been working on stories about the economy and manufacturing lately. She writes at the Couric & Co. blog, “Hey, Young People: Change The World … Through Manufacturing?“
If you’re like me, you’ll be shocked to hear that there are thousands of high-paying jobs out there – and no one qualified to fill them. Even more surprising: They are in the manufacturing sector! America’s manufacturers are screaming to anyone who will listen that their obituary was written too soon.
Cynthia notes the NAM/Manufacturing Institute’s “Dream It! Do It!” campaign, which strives to make manufacturing a more appealing profession for young people.
Thanks for taking note, Cynthia and CBS folk.
