Situations and Solutions:

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, manufacturing accounts for around 10% of all jobs in the United States.  Productivity is up as factories adopt new technologies and production processes.  As a result, the industry demands more skilled, better trained workers.  For new workers with disabilities and as our working population ages, it is imperative to consider providing job accommodations to enhance the productivity of these valuable workers.
