Unfilled manufacturing jobs underscores need for a paradigm shift

Evidence of 'vibrant opportunity": 83% of manufacturers are “likely” or “extremely likely” to replace at least one overseas supplier with a North American supplier in the next 12 months, an increase of 53% vs. March 2020, adding $443 billion to economy.

Evidence of 'inevitable decline': Over 1/2 million unfilled jobs today might result in 2.1 million unfilled jobs by 2030, subtracting $1 trillion from economy.

The U.S. continues to address this disconnect in a fragmented, piecemeal manner. We must recognize that the solution requires whole-system thinking. And that requires unprecedented collaboration at the local, state and national levels.
