People with careers in production work on the shop floor making parts or assembling them. They work with machines making or assembling electronic parts, constructing or assembling modular housing, performing welding jobs, or printing various materials.
Some occupations in this category, such as assemblers and machine operators, are going to grow more slowly than the average as manufacturing plants continue to move toward more automation of their processes. However, those individuals with a broad range of skills or a specific skill that cannot be automated will experience job growth and find their services in demand. Welders, tool and die makers, and multiple machine operators are examples of these growth occupations.
