Workshops for Warriors founder and President Hernan Luis Y Pardo discusses veterans getting back into the workforce and strengthening the U.S. manufacturing force.
U.S. manufacturing activity grew for the 18th consecutive month in November as companies continue to work around the clock to keep up with demand during the holiday season despite ongoing supply shortages and shipping delays.

The Institute for Supply Management's manufacturing purchasing manager's index rose to a reading of 61.1 in November, up 0.3% from the prior month's reading of 60.8. Any reading above 50 indicates growth in the manufacturing sector.
Sub-categories of new orders, production and employment all grew at a faster pace in November, though many respondents commented that they are still struggling to hire, despite some modest progress over the past three months. ISM's report said that 86% of the employment comments related to hiring, with 51% of those respondents saying they are struggling to fill positions, an increase from October.
