Timmons Talks ‘Creators Wanted’

Jay Timmons, president and CEO of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), recently spoke with Yahoo Finance about manufacturing’s labor shortage and NAM’s Creators Wanted program, which, among other things, provides Manufacturing Day resources.

Timmons told the network the national average wage for manufacturing is about $82,000. The host responded: “In high schools across the country, isn’t this the message that should be delivered? You had me at $82,000 a year, which is a lot more than base salary for journalists in New York City at union scale.” 6/21/2021
