  3. Tim Sullivan, special consultant for business and work force development to the state of Wisconsin and former chief executive officer of mining equipment maker Bucyrus International Inc., shared his thoughts with 400 of Wisconsin's manufacturers at the recent "Manufacturing Matters!" conference in Milwaukee.

    In his presentation, he cited statistics from recent Georgetown studies that revealed:
    - 61% of the jobs in Wisconsin will require a post secondary education in 2018: a total of 925,000 jobs
    - 70% of the jobs available today need a 2 year degree
    - Our total Wisconsin workforce is 2.8 million; we will need to replace one third of our workforce in the next six years
    - 38,000 of the job openings will be due to growth, the rest are replacements of retiring workers
