For most Americans, real wages have barely budged for decades - Pew Research Center
Despite the strong labor market, wage growth has lagged economists’ expectations. In fact, despite some ups and downs over the past several decades, today’s real average wage (that is, the wage after accounting for inflation) has about the same purchasing power it did 40 years ago. And what wage gains there have been have mostly flowed to the highest-paid tier of workers.

Machining Demand Surges With Boom in U.S. Manufacturing - Thomasnet
This trend correlates with a booming resurgence in U.S. manufacturing, which added 24,000 jobs in April alone according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). However, these strong employment numbers somewhat mask a significant challenge for the precision machining industry – that challenge being the shortage of skilled workers in the trade. In fact, the Bureau predicts that there will be a need for an additional 29,000 new machinists by 2024.

Yes, manufacturing still provides a pay advantage, but staffing firm outsourcing is eroding it - Economic Policy Institute
These reports raise the question of whether there is a pay premium for manufacturing work and whether this pay premium has eroded, especially recently and for particular types of workers. We review these studies and conduct new analysis of manufacturing wage and benefit premiums and conclude that although the increase in outsourcing manufacturing work to staffing agencies has helped erode pay and job quality, there is still a substantial manufacturing pay premium.

(It’s worth noting that, in many cases, the slump intensified or accelerated longer-term trends that already were underway. Also, in order to highlight changes, in most cases we compare the most recent available economic data points with those in December 2007, when the economy started its big slowdown.)

Ditto for the production of business equipment. In fact, output excluding the auto industry rose the most in three years, a figure that bodes well for the durability of the manufacturing improvement.

Manufacturing Grows in Utah
Utah isn't generally thought of as a manufacturing state, but manufacturing plays an enormous role in the state's economy. According to data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis and the U.S. Census Bureau, Utah manufacturing output grew from less than $10 billion in 2000 to $17.47 billion in 2014. Utah manufacturers accounted for 12.4 percent of the state's output in 2014 and in 2015 the state's 3,051 manufacturers employed 125,300 workers in 2015, or nearly 10 percent of the state's workforce.

Don’t Blame A ‘Skills Gap’ For Lack Of Hiring In Manufacturing - FiveThirtyEight
U.S. factories are hiring again. Or they’re trying to, anyway. Manufacturers posted 379,000 job openings in July, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Wednesday. That’s up more than 280 percent — close to quadruple — since the recession ended more than seven years ago.

When it comes to actually filling those jobs, though, the rebound has been far more gradual.
