Automotive Industry Workers
Little or no employment change is expected in motor vehicle and parts manufacturing through 2020, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, with the outlook being about the same in general vehicle manufacturing. After several challenging years in which two of the Big Three went bankrupt and were bailed out by the U.S. government, the industry is beginning to bounce back as a result of rising consumer demand for vehicles in the United States and other countries (especially China). There should be a large number of openings as many automotive industry workers reach retirement age in the next several years. Additionally, many American autoworkers are continuing to find good opportunities at foreign-owned manufacturing plants that have been built in the United States. Today, many U.S. automotive workers are employed by foreign-owned automakers such as Honda and Mitsubishi.
