- Attracting Youth to Manufacturing
Factory work in 2016 is a new universe compared to just 20 years ago. Today’s manufacturing has more in common with Google than it does heavy-duty grease. But despite its clean environment and use of computers, the under 30 crowd just doesn’t seem interested in these jobs and that’s troubling for manufacturers of all types.
So some companies have joined together with states, municipalities and schools to try to attract workers from both Millennials and Generation Z. On this week’s Autoline, John McElroy looks at what one area of South Carolina is doing to bring a younger work force into manufacturing. His panel includes: Dirk Pieper, President & CEO of Sage Automotive Interiors; Lewis Gossett, Executive Director SCMA (South Carolina Manufacturing Alliance); Matt Critell, Program Director, Fisher Middle School.
UP FOR DISCUSSION: The growing truck market & the new Honda Ridgeline. Guests include members of the Honda Ridgeline team plus News and Truck Talk on location from San Antonio, TX with our hosts & panel.
SPECIAL GUESTS: Jeff Conrad, SVP & GM Honda Sales Kerry McClure, Ridgeline Chief Engineer Jim Loftus, Ridgeline’s Performance Lead
All that and much more with hosts John McElroy of Autoline.tv and Gary Vasilash from Automotive Design & Production along with special guest panelists auto analyst Joe Phillippi from Auto Trends and auto historian Ken Gross.
