Over 50 percent of U.S. products require welding, including race cars, bridges, ships, computers, medical devices, farm equipment, gas pipelines, skyscrapers, automobiles, train tracks, airplanes and scooters.
Welding training programs are effective in many settings. One of the places these programs can be successful is correctional facilities.
Studies have shown that inmates who take part in education programs have a 43% lower recidivism rate than those who don’t.
What’s more, every dollar spent on funding prison education programs can drastically reduce incarceration costs in the first three years post-release.
Here are two more statistics for you: The U.S. will need 400,000 welders by 2025. Right now, 81% of manufacturers cannot find enough skilled workers.
