Made in America Hub

To really push Made in America you need to arm yourself with the right research, data, news and stories, and the redesigned Alliance for American Manufacturing site now gives you even more tools to use and share.

�

Just as we've covered the real stories and impact of reshoring, so has the Alliance for American Manufacturing. And recently it overhauled the website to more easily offer the facts, figures, data, research, news and stories for the latest Made in America trends and developments in the manufacturing policy world.

The Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) was founded in 2007 by leading domestic manufacturers and the United Steelworkers, North America’s largest industrial union, with a simple mission: strengthen American manufacturing through smart public policies. AAM achieves its mission through research, public education, advocacy, strategic communications, and coalition building around the issues that matter most to America’s manufacturers and workers.

One interesting aspect of the site is the Local tab, which takes you to a map where you select your state to read up on local data and posts. For example, I leave in Pennsylvania, and I just found out the following:

  • We have 556,800 current manufacturing jobs
  • We lost more than 306,000 manufacturing jobs since 2001
  • 96,800 manufacturing jobs are needed for full recession recovery
  • 253,000 potential jobs were created by ending currency manipulation
  • Manufacturing represents 10 percent of total employment
  • Manufacturing represents 12 percent of the gross state product

 

This is just one interesting and valuable aspect to the new site. Check it out.
