November theme: Manufacturing & Industry
When considering Milwaukee’s largest challenges, and their root causes, the decline of industry and manufacturing nears the top of the list. While Milwaukee has lost a considerable number of manufacturing jobs in the past 40 years, loss is far from the whole story. Sixteen percent of the Milwaukee region's workforce is employed in manufacturing, ranking second in the nation among the top 50 metro areas for manufacturing jobs. Whether its driven by time-tested industries, cutting edge technology or scrappy entrepreneurs, Milwaukee is still a city that makes things.
Join us as we explore factory floors, sample what’s being made around Milwaukee and learn about the role industry plays in our city's economy.
