CNN reports that as manufacturing “is rapidly being transformed from a labor-intensive field to a high-tech one,” more women are entering the field.
The National Association of Manufacturers says about a third of manufacturing workers today are female. One of the women featured in the story, 35-year-old April Senase, makes up to $37.50/hour running high-tech machinery.
Her normal pay is $25/hour, but she’s getting a lot of overtime – because few are qualified for the work. So she’s taking a second job: teaching other women about computer-aided machining.
CNN says the industry changes brought on by computers have “created thousands of factory jobs nationwide that, experts say, more women are starting to seek out.”
