Times of trouble and hardship can also present tremendous opportunity.
American manufacturing is going through a lot of changes during the COVID-19 pandemic, especially in relation to how we work with other countries.
Right now is a fantastic time to support manufacturing in the United States. Here are a few things that can be done!
1. Bring more manufacturing back to the US
There are plenty of pros and cons to bringing manufacturing back to the United States.
On one hand, it increases jobs and supports our economy! On the other, there is already a labor shortage in the field and pollution is a consideration.
However, due to the coronavirus the workforce is going through tremendous changes and many now find themselves unexpectedly unemployed. This could be a great chance to draw in some new talent from other industries! We can also utilize technology to offset the number of workers needed.
As for pollution concerns. . .
2. Focus on green manufacturing
Let's take this time to get cleaner and greener!
Smarter factories are the answer.
Forbes reported, "By building expensive, cleaner-but-not-totally-clean plants, empowering regulators to keep our environment and workers safe and automating so workers don’t have to do the most dangerous jobs. "
If we put all of this together, the manufacturing industry can come back better and stronger than ever.
