I recently went to Disney World with my family and we were able to check out the new Star Wars Galaxy Edge exhibit. While I’m not a huge Star Wars fan, I can understand why fans are so anxious to see it. From creating your own Droids and Lightsabers to rides, shops and the actual set, it is impressive. They even had a robot repair station (pictured.)

Joe Campbell of Universal Robots did a talk on Resolving the Labor Crisis in Manufacturing at The Assembly Show, on October 23rd in Rosemont, Illinois. Here we recap some of the key points discussed.

It would seem like manufacturing is the way to go if you want a job fast out of high school or college. However, the industry is quickly discovering they can't fill these jobs.
