24 manufacturing companies came together at City Hall to discuss the Erie Manufacturing Partnership. Their goal is to encourage people to join the manufacturing industry because of its growing need for new talent and fresh ideas.
The salary starts at $40,000 and includes stable benefits. It’s an industry that doesn’t require a college degree.
President of Red Dog Industries William Hilbert, Jr. tells us, “The ERMP has done a fantastic job leading an awareness campaign that is helping all manufacturers that are trying to close the skills gap that we all suffer from.”
Manufacturing also offers four-year apprenticeship programs.
