Filling the Skills Gap One Student at a Time w/ Matt Guse
Baby Boomers are retiring. Manufacturing is booming in 2021. And emerging generations aren't considering careers in the field. There just aren't enough people to do the jobs that need to be done. How will manufacturers fill the skills gap Boomers are leaving behind them? In today's episode, I talk with Matt Guse, President at MRS Machining Company, about an actual manufacturing operation happening within the walls of a Wisconsin high school. Here's what Matt and I discussed: How Matt launched, funded, and supported his competition The benefits of inserting a manufacturing operation into a high school Why interest in manufacturing has declined among young people and how to change that trajectory To ensure that you never miss an episode of The Manufacturing Executive, subscribe on Apple Podcasts, or Spotify, or here.
