(Aug 21) – America’s manufacturing boom could add 250K jobs in two years according to a new estimate from Goldman Sachs. This increase amounts to about 2% of current manufacturing employment levels, due in part to incentives and investments in semiconductor and green tech sectors in recent federal legislation. This has stimulated the construction of new manufacturing facilities, particularly in the western US, where every $1M increase in manufacturing construction spend leads to roughly 9 new manufacturing jobs. They expect $65B of such spend over the next two years, subject to labor market constraints. Notably, around one-third of this spend pledged to green and semiconductor manufacturing is set to occur in Arizona alone, due to investments from TSMC and Intel. (Axios)
