Manufacturing Matters in Mississippi

Manufacturing has always been an important part of our nation's economy. Similarly, in Mississippi, manufacturing continues to be a significant source of jobs for our citizens and one of the largest contributors to our state's economic profile. For example, for every direct job in manufacturing, another two jobs are created in the economy to support that job. The manufacturing industry is the backbone of Mississippi's economy. Manufacturing jobs pay higher wages and provide better benefits on average to employees and their families. Please take a moment to review the infographic images below that showcase how significant manufacturing is to Mississippi.
