There are over 1,500 National Days, National Weeks and National Months according to the National Day calendar...National Pizza Day (February 9th), National Oatmeal Nut Waffle Day (March 11th), and National Cheeseburger Day (September 18th) just to name a few. We also annually celebrate National Manufacturing Day observed on October 2nd this year. This may sound like any other commemorative day but there is much more to Manufacturing Day than most people think. There are over 12 million people employed in manufacturing roles throughout the U.S. This day celebrates how these jobs keep our economy running while also encouraging the next generation to take a look at a career in manufacturing.
