Manufacturers Look For More Skilled Workers
The manufacturing sector pushed for the graduation requirement changes.
Their workforce is getting older and they can’t find young workers skilled enough to fill positions.
At Rexair in Cadillac, the average age of plant workers is 51.
They, like many other manufacturers, need to replenish their workforce with young workers before this generation retires, leaving them with a major shortage.
If there are more students deciding to take this career path more jobs in the long run can be created because companies can expand with confidence.
