Manufacturing Operations Roundtable

Date: Thursday, May 04, 2017 8:30 am - 10:00 am
Duration: 1 Hour 30 Minutes

How we can rebuild American Manufacturing to Create Jobs and Prosperity

For over sixty years, American manufacturing dominated globe. Manufacturing jobs raised the lower working class into the middle class from 1900 – 2000. High-paying manufacturing jobs spurred a robust and growing economy, and we had little dependence on foreign nations for manufactured goods. From 2000 to 2011, the U. S. lost 5.8 million manufacturing jobs and 57,000 manufacturing firms closed. As a result of outsourcing manufacturing offshore, we have a huge trade deficit, slow economic growth, continued high unemployment, a shrinking middle-class, and declining innovation.

Michele Nash-Hoff will describe the current state of American manufacturing and discuss how we can rebuild American manufacturing by developing a national manufacturing strategy. She will describe how we can eliminate the trade deficit with new trade policies and how we can return manufacturing to America through reshoring, new tax policies, and developing a trained workforce.
