Why Manufacturing?

- Manufacturing provides one out of every seven non-metropolitan jobs in America.
- It pays higher wages than any other sector in America except mining.
- It provides nearly twice the share of employment and earnings in rural places as in urban areas.
- Manufacturing provides more jobs and contributes 25% more to rural economies than agriculture.
- It provides slightly more jobs in retail and at far better pay.

- Nearly twice as many rural jobs as construction.

- Five times as many world jobs as mining.

- Much of this economic output is being driven by small locally owned firms. 

- The average size of all manufacturers worldwide is 20 employees.

- So this is a very much a small business phenomenon in rural America. 

Why 4 Corners?

1.  Colorado, Utah & Arizona companies struggling to recruit employees in light manufacturing. They have

not heard of the features and benefits of the 4 corners.

 

2.  Serving as a bridge to connect 4 Corners economic development to Think Tanks and institutes focused on Rural Economic development in Colorado, NM, AZ, and Utah.  4 Corners Convergence serves as a regional hub. Where else have we seen such models work?

3. Focus on growing smaller industries in the area, such as tourism, manufacturing & High tech with a plan to bring in international groups and building cross state alliances.
