Thirteen percent of all jobs in Minnesota are in manufacturing. The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development has projected that 1500+ manufacturing jobs will be available in Minnesota each year for the next 10 years. However, economic and demographic trends have produced a shortage of skilled technicians that threaten sustained manufacturing sector growth throughout the state.
According to Enterprise Minnesota’s 2015 State of Manufacturing comprehensive survey, “Minnesota’s manufacturers overwhelmingly expect to parlay previous success and a sturdy economy into solid business growth in 2015, during which they’ll expand hiring and increase wages, much as they say they’ve done over the past two years. At the same time, they remain apprehensive about the looming skills gap being fueled by retirements among Baby Boomers.” www.enterpriseminnesota.org
