A Manufacturer’s Commitment to a Strong Future Workforce #fivepercentpledge

You don’t have to simply hope that there will be a skilled workforce available when your workforce begins to retire.  You can actually do something about it now.

Sign the 5% Pledge and pay it forward.  For every 20 employees in your organization hire one temporary intern, co-op, high school student or long-term unemployed individual this summer.  It is a simple idea that will have a valuable pay off in your company’s future.  It has worked for your colleagues and it can work for you.The 5% Pledge

    Thanks Tom, and thanks to Applied and all the New York Photonics manufacturers who have (or will) also sign the pledge and work with us at FAME (nyfame.org) of promoting manufacturing in the Finger Lakes to the workforce of the future.
