10    Illinois manufacturers employ 554,000 women and men on
11factory floors today in jobs that average nearly $88,000 in
12wages and benefits with 92% of employees receiving
13employer-funded health care. Manufacturers provide the single
14largest share of Illinois' gross State product, but are
15challenged to find skilled workers.
16    National labor data shows that the United States now has
17more than 1,000,000 open manufacturing jobs, which is the
18highest recorded level in history and more than double the
19unfilled jobs in February 2020. It is imperative that Illinois
20work with the statewide manufacturing associations, colleges
21and universities, K-12 school districts, economic development
22officials, and individual companies to attract and recruit
23workers into the manufacturing sector.
