On Thursday, January 21, 2016, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. and again from noon to
2 p.m., the Muskegon Area Career Tech Center (MACTC) will host a Modern Manufacturing Day. Leaders from 18 local manufacturers will meet face-to-face with students looking for a chance for further job interviews and employment. Organizers planned the event to bridge the gap between manufacturers and teens preparing to enter the workplace. The goal is to ensure the ongoing prosperity of the industry by filling a skilled labor shortage that is reported both locally and nationally.
