American Manufacturers working together to compete globally in the 21st century

The Minority is the Majority

The simple fact that 98% of all manufacturing companies in the USA have fewer than 200 employees, and have the least say so in the laws that are regulating them, is the biggest obstacle and hindrance of all in today's manufacturing industry.
We make up less then 15% of the workforce, and at the same time, we deliver about 50% of America's economy, yet no one is helping the smaller manufacturers. We know in the manufacturing industry, when one customer supplies us with 50% of the yearly income, we get out the white gloves and embrace this customer with open arms. Why aren't the lawmakers, bankers, educational institutions embracing the manufacturer with open arms and asking, "What else can we do for you?"
We must work together, collaborate, and innovate.
We are no longer competing with each other, we are competing against the global economy. We must come together to make this nation the might that it so deserves.
