Make the 5% Pledge
To succeed, manufacturers need a skilled workforce, strong business model, leadership and a thriving community. It has become a challenge to find qualified workers. Now is the time, to unite and pledge to expand our workforce and long-term prosperity.
We are asking companies to pledge 5% of your current workforce to the future. That means for every 100 employees in your organization, you will provide five temporary positions for interns, high school students and/or the long-term unemployed to expose them to the manufacturing environment and culture – through experience.
We've taken the pledge and encourage others to take the pledge.
