Looking Deeper: Reshoring and the Semiconductor Workforce

Date & Time

Oct. 24, 2023
10:00am – 11:00am ET


Online Only


A major goal of federal activity on semiconductors is focused on reshoring or ally-shoring chip production where possible, which has resulted in a wave of investment in new US-based fabrication facilities by semiconductor giants like TSMC. These fabrication facilities come with enormous demand for skilled labor, from highly-skilled engineers to technicians with specialized training, and while these jobs pay very well, they can also be highly stressful and demanding. Is the United States workforce ready to fill these jobs? This panel will discuss policy solutions to boost our supply of highly-skilled and specialized workers.
