Manufacturing the Future

The documentary tells the stories of manufacturers, big and small and visits Wisconsin companies to subtly point out that not all manufacturing is done elsewhere. It examines challenges facing manufacturing, including environmental issues, globalization, a shrinking skilled work force and negative perceptions.
Yes, there are fewer manufacturing jobs to be had than in the past. But there are ample manufacturing jobs. Those jobs requiremore high-tech skills than in the past, and tyhe documentary underlines the importance of technical college training to take advantage of openings. Wisconsin vies with Indiana as the nation’s top manufacturing state with 24 percent of the jobs in Wisconsin being manufacturing-related.
