In 2015, WIRE-Net re-posted a blog by Gary Weldon from the popular MADEinOHIO.us blog. Gary's words inspired us to act to help our member companies and their employees.

"You see, an apprenticeship is more than just a training program – something able to transfer key skills to a new generation – it is a career pathway. It takes the ambiguous 'Just show up and work hard and someday you'll be successful' mindset and gives it specificity. It gives those who are willing to work hard a clear view of what's achievable and outlines the steps of how they can get there.

It also does something else. Something very powerful. It communicates that a career in manufacturing is something worth investing time and money in. It shows a young apprentice that their company is optimistic about the future and is committed to developing the people who will be essential to its success."
