Who says the government isn’t hep to the wild and wonderful web? The healthcare website might be a mess, but the U.S. Census Bureau has put out a pretty solid infographic that describes manufacturing’s role in the economy.
That’s only one image. But say, do you want some more solid Census facts? Manufacturing is one of the top three employers in 26 states; its average pay is roughly double that of a job in the retail sector; and, despite a decade that featured a precipitous decline in employment, 11 million Americans still work in manufacturing.
