Many of us, unless we are acquainted with the inner-workings in one way or another, have little understanding of what goes on inside a manufacturing business.
Are you guilty of thinking that the building is full of hair-netted-clones who like to stand at a conveyer belt, doing mindless repetitive tasks all day long? Oh ye of little imagination—ye are so wrong!
Manufacturing places are like large-villages… there are all sorts of people, doing all sorts of jobs.
The range of qualifications held by workers, vary from on-the-job training, to trades, to TAFE qualifications to University Degrees and more.
There are office workers, cleaners, laboratory workers, trades, OH&S Reps, executives, manual labourers, engineers, caterers, Human Resources (people who hire, fire and pay wages), and the list goes on and on! So much so, that most of you would find a job, highly suited to you, within the manufacturing sector.
And yet, we continue to drive past with our pre-conceived-hair-net-ideas. Hmmm, go figure!
