The manufacturing industry is vital to the US economy. Every dollar spent in manufacturing adds $1.37 to the US economy. Every 100 manufacturing jobs add over 250 jobs in other sectors. The good news is, after a bleak few decades, manufacturing jobs themselves are on the rise. In 2013, the International Monetary Fund predicted a 3-4% growth in US manufacturing over the following two years.
