Over the next decade, American manufacturers are expected to have nearly three million job openings. Unfortunately, chances are your school’s guidance counselor or career advisor never talked to you about those opportunities. There are couple of reasons for this.

And then the recession hit, and every industry suffered. On top of that, most young Americans aren’t looking for manufacturing jobs.
