Manufacturing Multiplies, Pays, Exports, and Innovates

Posted by John Colm, WIRE-Net President and Executive Director on May 10, 2016 9:39:34 AM

At WIRE-Net, Manufacturing Matters, because, as we like to put it, manufacturing multiplies, manufacturing pays, exports, and innovates. 

What we mean by this is that every manufacturing job is the foundation for up to 5 additional jobs in other industry sectors, the highest employment multiplier of any industry.  Manufacturing pays 17% more in wages than other sectors.  52% of U.S. exports are in the manufacturing sector.  Finally, 75% of private sector research and development comes from the manufacturing sector, helping ensure that American manufacturing remains on the cutting edge of new products and technologies.
