BRIDGING THE SKILLS GAP THROUGH EDUCATION
We believe the need for cooperation from political and business leaders to help make today’s high paying manufacturing careers accessible to everyone is paramount.
Made in America actively seeks out opportunities to affect this change with strategic donations to our schools that ignite imagination and creativity. Items such as 3D printers in our elementary and middle schools stimulate interest in todays manufacturing. In our high schools and colleges, manufacturing training equipment is vital to making todays essential credentials available to as many potential workers as possible.
As Technology continues to advance exponentially in areas of industrial automation, robotics, artificial intelligence etc., current curriculum in our schools needs to adapt to these changes. CPT and CPT+ Certification, recommended by the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC) is quickly becoming a must have credential for manufacturing job seekers today.
BE AMERICAN, BUY AMERICAN
Made In America promotes and supports “Patriotic Spending” – the act of using American dollars to purchase American goods and services. As a nation, when we purchase foreign made goods, we are driving a stake in the heart of our economy. If we do not support American workers, jobs are shipped out of the country. If we do not support American businesses, they die off at a staggering rate. By purchasing Made in the USA products, we are strengthening our economy and the financial future of this country. For every manufacturing job we bring back to America, FIVE additional jobs are created as a result. If each of those employed, in turn, spends their money on American made goods and services the cycle will continue. The more you buy American made, the more the economy is stimulated, and the more jobs are created. In fact, if we spend just 5% more on American made products, we can help create 1 million jobs directly and another 1 million jobs indirectly.
DRIVING THE FUTURE OF MANUFACTURING
Despite past challenges, the U.S. automotive sector is poised to become the world leader in innovation, research, and development. In today’s automotive industry, American cars have become the benchmark of quality, dependability, styling, and fuel efficiency. With more models and options than ever before, and a vast array of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles manufactured by American companies like Tesla, Ford Motors, and Chevrolet we are rivaling our foreign competition in every way. Made In America proudly supports and promotes American automakers and urges all Americans to buy American cars to help support our economy.
