The US Department of Commerce's GDP analysis of manufacturing estimates the industry represents ~11% of the economy and has 1.4x multiplier effect for every dollar spent.  Those figures are already quite significant; however, this article outlines research from the MAPI showing that the US manufacturing sector’s economic contribution is actually 32% and has a multiplier effect of 3.6x for every dollar created.

Veryable: New Option for Today’s Workforce

By Mike Kinder on Feb 5, 2017 6:08:00 PM

The on-demand economy is offering a new set of options for today’s worker.  The “gig economy” has produced options like Uber, Lyft, and TaskRabbit where you can make some extra money on the side giving people rides or running other people’s errands.  Uber drivers in Dallas, for example, can typically make $15-18 per hour as side income, and those that drive full time can earn over $40,000 per year.  The Veryable on-demand model is a bit different though – we are looking beyond “gigs” and building a marketplace that provides you with a continuous stream of on-demand opportunities in manufacturing and warehousing so you can achieve full-time income while creating your own schedule based on your personal needs.
