Just under three-quarters (73%) of manufacturing organizations reported mild to significant improvement in overall financial health in 2012 compared with 59% in 2011. About the same percentage in 2012 (75%) were currently hiring; however, two-thirds (67%) of these organizations were having difficulty recruiting for specific jobs. One of the strategies for dealing with this challenge is hiring U.S. veterans, which has increased from 44% in 2011 to 59% in 2012.
