Despite off shore manufacturing, the need for experienced and skilled labor and management is still in great demand. And, there is an excellent labor pool from which to draw.

However, the problem, even in a good economic environment, is relocating these employees or, in the case of expansion or start ups, to locate the manufacturing facility in close proximity to an adequate labor pool.

A number of services are available online that offer this information and some useful tools for the employer and people seeking employment plus retraining and upgrading of skills to meet the demands of new systems, procedures and methods.
