A Lucrative Alternative to Minimum Wage Jobs


Employment trends in the U.S. reflect that scores of workers are forced to hold multiple minimum wage jobs to make a decent living.

A recent Bloomberg report states that multiple-job holders comprised 5.1 percent of the total employed.

Alongside this trend is growth in trades and manufacturing jobs. In fact, 78% of manufacturers say attracting quality talent is their top business challenge.

A multitude of options are becoming more available for workers to advance a career with lucrative manufacturing jobs. These openings provide a worthwhile, secure alternative to holding multiple low paying jobs.

According to a CNBC report, since the U.S. labor shortage is reaching a critical point, employers are going to have to increase efforts to entice and attract workers through pay raises, training and other incentives.

With shortage of skilled workers to fill these jobs, it’s a great time to pursue a career in manufacturing.
