Attracting and retaining a well-trained talent base is one of the biggest challenges faced by manufacturers. As a leader in the industry, it is the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’s responsibility to reinvigorate interest in the field and inspire others to seek the opportunities manufacturing offers. To achieve this goal, they have launched an initiative targeting the expansion of apprenticeship to usher in the fourth industrial revolution.
