The Tax Cuts and Jobs act are continuing to boost manufacturing.
Manufacturers are hiring more workers, wages are rising and investments are increasing.
In a survey from the National Association of Manufacturers, 72% of manufacturers are ramping up worker’s wages and benefits.
More from the survey says 77% said they’re hiring more workers, and 86% are investing more in their plants.
Optimism in manufacturing is still at an all-time high, as 93% have a positive outlook. Wage growth last month rose at the fastest pace in 17 years.
According to the survey, manufacturers expected full-time employment to increase to 2.9% on average over the next 12 months, another all-time high.
Remember when President Obama said the jobs aren’t coming back and that the American people have to deal with it? This is what the forgotten men and women voted for.
