Staub Manufacturing Solutions welder Corey Adams will join President Donald Trump, Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump, National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President and CEO Jay Timmons and Manufacturing Institute Executive Director Carolyn Lee at the signing of the Pledge to America’s Workers.
The Pledge to America’s Workers is an initiative of the White House launched one year ago. To date, manufacturers have committed to provide training opportunities to 1,186,000 manufacturing workers over the next five years to address the industry’s skills gap crisis. The initiative asks companies and trade groups nationwide to commit to expand programs that educate, train and reskill American workers from high school age to near retirement. Staub Manufacturing is one of hundreds of companies that have signed the pledge.
“We are so proud that the White House and the National Association of Manufacturers invited our Corey the Welder to participate in today’s event!” said Steve Staub, President of Staub Manufacturing Solutions. “Corey is a great example of what is possible in manufacturing. A person can enter the industry with little or no experience, learn a skilled trade through on-the-job training and build a successful career. It’s worth considering that, today, the average welder makes as much money in their lifetime as the average attorney.”
“Manufacturers face a workforce crisis with more than half a million unfilled manufacturing jobs today and 2.4 million jobs that may go unfilled by 2028,” said Jay Timmons in today’s NAM press release. “But manufacturers are also problem solvers and committed to being part of the solution. The men and women who make things in America are the backbone of this economy, and it is our commitment that America’s manufacturing workers will have the opportunity to learn, grow and take on new challenges.”
Corey was a guest of the First Lady (along with Steve Staub and Sandy Keplinger of STAUB) at the 2018 State of the Union address. Today’s signing event is scheduled for 3:30 pm at the White House.
