Manufacturing is crucial to the economy in the United States, accounting for 62 percent of research and development and almost a third of productivity growth. In terms of job creation, this industry has the highest multiplier effect: Every $1 million of final sales supports eight manufacturing jobs and six jobs in other industries, such as services and agriculture. Because manufacturing covers a broad range of products, it offers a variety of opportunities for those who wish to work in it.
