The Changing Face of Manufacturing in the U.S.
Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017, Noon Eastern/17:00 GMT
Employment in the U.S. manufacturing sector has been declining for decades, even as manufacturing output in the U.S. economy has held steady. In fact, because of robotics, automation and other forms of advanced manufacturing, factories are now producing more than they did two decades ago. That may help the bottom line, but what about American workers? In this free, one-hour webinar, we will help journalists understand the issues surrounding manufacturing in the U.S. – including the role of public-private partnerships to boost manufacturing operations; the conflicts between free trade and protectionism; and the latest analyses on which sectors are seeing manufacturing jobs rise.
