for manufacturing jobs, workers brush up on math

Politicians touted modern manufacturing as a solution to boost the economy and provide good jobs.
But today\'s manufacturing industry requires a strong mathematical ability.
Not just adding and subtracting, but having a good grasp of fractions, decimals, and basic triangles.
Job seekers who want to enter the manufacturing industry often do not have the required conditions.
Therefore, universities and non-profit organizations, especially universities and non-profit organizations throughout Illinois, are filling this skill gap by combining manufacturing training with basic reading and mathematics.
During the recession, more than 2 million manufacturing workers were unemployed.
Since then, there have been about half a million jobs.
You can do math: That means at least 1.
5 million people are still unemployed.
But when you talk to the employer, they say they can\'t find good people to hire.
Tools North America
Jim Hoyt of his northwest Illinois company now has two vacancies and he is expected to continue hiring.
However, he often encounters the same problem during the application process.
\"I\'ll write down a few numbers, mostly after the decimal point, because that\'s the number that we use in manufacturing, let them add or subtract, or divide by two, Hoyt said.
Job seekers often do not do math.
Since modern machines require precise input, it is important to have basic mathematical knowledge, especially decimals.
Like most manufacturers, North American knives use CNC or computer numerical control equipment.
From tool parts made in North America to cars and medical equipment, CNC machines make everything.
But calling these machines computerized is almost a misnomer because there is still a lot of manual computing.
If you leave, the device can crash even if it\'s just a small part.
Hoyt said that CNC crashes are usually due to wrong input or wrong numbers being calculated.
\"I will hear a wreck in my office and almost the entire store will be quiet,\" he said . \".
These accidents could cost tens of thousands of dollars in repairing expensive CNC machines and losing productivity.
Now, many employers do not want to teach the basics or risk damaging the equipment.
As a result, the students turned to career programs in schools such as Richard J.
Daley College in southern Chicago learns how to operate CNC machines.
Ray prendgast, who directs the Institute\'s manufacturing program, said algebra and basic triangles are prerequisites.
Entry of college entrance examination measures-
Proficiency level.
But Prendergast said, \"most of the students entering my program are not English 101, nor math 118.
Daley College has just begun to provide tutoring education for manufacturing.
Over the past few years, these bridge projects have become particularly popular in the Midwest, where many people who offer CNC or welding courses realize that students are just not ready to take the course directly.
Become the next generation of non-profit organizations including Jane Adams Resources
Bernard Barton, one of Chicago\'s first bridge projects, who is also a former student there, is also stepping up to meet training needs, saying that for what he wants to do now, his guidance of the bridge is essential.
The training helped him complete all the math calculations during the welding process.
He said he also wanted to follow in the footsteps of his uncle, a steel worker who founded his own company.
Barton wants to be part of a new generation of manufacturing workers, which will be a good enough business, and maybe he can pass it on to his two sons.
