California Has 40K Job Openings in Manufacturing

California tops the list of manufacturers looking for assemblers, engineers, CNC specialists and managers.

Even with all of the vacancies California is still the top employer nationally with 1.2 million.

The top 10 states for manufacturing jobs on AmericanMFGjobs.com include:

1. California - 42,377

2. Texas - 32,386

3. Illinois - 17,290

4. New York - 14,790

5. Ohio - 14,753

6. Pennsylvania - 14,211

7. Michigan - 12,381

8. Florida - 12,167

9. Washington - 11,736

10. Massachusetts - 11,166

Of course one of the reasons for open positions could be inadequate pay. Jill Jusko, Sr. editor of IndustryWeek, explored this issue in a recent article.

Another take on the matter, put forth by IndustryWeek's Editor-in-Chief, Pat Panchak, is that "industry executives must change how they view and lead production workers."
