Buffalo, NY: "Manufacturing has challenges and opportunities."
In an article in Buffalo Business First, Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) President Scott Paul explains how Western New York can see a resurgence in manufacturing jobs and can find the skilled workers needed to fill those positions:
“Economics will take care of any skills gap in the coming years, and if kids can find opportunities and financial aid, and can figure out opportunities in manufacturing, they may go there,” said Paul, president of Alliance for Manufacturing, a non-profit, non-partisan partnership among America’s leading manufacturers and United Steelworkers to explore common solutions to challenging public policy topics.
To fill that skills gap, and to make sure such opportunities exist, the president of the Washington, D.C.-based trade group added there needs to be public policies in place to support them.
