Due to a staggering lack of vision, America is rapidly falling behind in its ability to innovate and compete globally. There are currently more than half a million unfilled jobs in the advanced manufacturing industry. By 2028, due to a lack of a skilled workforce, there will be 2.4 million unfilled advanced manufacturing positions. If that happens, the persistent skills shortage will jeopardize $2.5 trillion in economic output. That’s why we must train veterans for a new fight, a fight to save America’s economic base. If American business wants to compete and thrive over the next decade as we rebuild post-COVID, we need to fund the next generation of trainers, now.
