More Job Security as Factory Work Requires More Technical Skills



(p. A3) A yearslong decline in the number of layoffs is providing a renewed level of job security to factory workers, who had seen their ranks thin since the late 1970s.

"We've become much more careful about letting people go," said David Nicholson, chief executive of PVS Chemicals Inc., a Detroit manufacturer with 850 employees. "Most manufacturing jobs today are technology jobs. It takes a long time to train someone for that role, so you're reluctant to let them go for what could be a short-term slowdown."
