AARP Connecticut will host a live, interactive Telephone Town Hall to discuss the subject with State Senator Matt Lesser and State Representative Sean Scanlon – two Connecticut legislators who are taking on the issue and serve as co-chairs of the Connecticut General Assembly’s Insurance and Real Estate Committee – on Thursday, April 11, at 10 a.m.

Connecticut’s manufacturing industry will need an estimated 25,000 to 35,000 new skilled workers for the state’s 4,100 manufacturing companies in the next two decades. Connecticut state colleges and universities, private colleges, and the state’s comprehensive and technical high schools have done a great job of introducing the varied and high-tech career opportunities available to students in the manufacturing industry. However, the growing demand for qualified workers to meet the resurgent manufacturing industry is outpacing the supply, which has created an increasing need for instructors. AARP Connecticut has begun assisting schools in identifying and recruiting retired manufacturers who might consider applying their real world skills in the classroom.
