The manufacturing industry added over 14,000 jobs in November. According to a recent report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in the industrial space has been consistently trending upward, with an average of 34,000 jobs per month so far this year. The average workweek for manufacturing employees decreased by 0.2 hours and overtime decreased by 0.1 hours.
According to the U.S. Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh: “We are also seeing continued job growth in the manufacturing and construction sectors that have been bolstered by investments from the CHIPS and Science Act and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. We’ve added more than 750,000 manufacturing jobs since the Administration began and supply chains are strong as the holiday season begins.”
