National Manufacturing Day
October 4, 2019
Recognize the importance of manufacturing to growing our economy and creating jobs by cosponsoring the Manufacturing Day Resolution (H.Con.Res.28)
This year National Manufacturing Day is on Friday, October 4. The manufacturing industry has a significant impact in every congressional district across the United States. Recent data shows that the manufacturing industry contributes more than $2.38 trillion
to the U.S. economy, with about 12.8 million workers employed by manufacturers across the country, accounting for ten percent of private sector jobs. An additional 18.5 million jobs are supported indirectly by manufacturing businesses.
We celebrate Manufacturing Day annually to recognize the role that the manufacturing industry has in the growth and prosperity of the U.S. economy and to raise awareness of the important investment and career opportunities the sector provides.
On average, manufacturing workers in the United States earned more than the average worker in all other industries. These are family-wage jobs in clean, safe environments that increasingly offer high-tech skilled positions. Manufacturing Day allows for
communities, schools, and colleges to engage with local businesses to learn about the importance of manufacturing, to experience the modern ‘shop floor,’ and to explore the range of career opportunities available.
We believe that your participation and advocacy is important to the success of Manufacturing Day. It provides a great opportunity for you to engage with and promote manufacturing businesses and jobs available within your districts. This is why we introduced
a resolution in the House of Representatives to officially recognize Manufacturing Day as an annual event taking place on the first Friday in October.
