NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- President Obama last week promised a boom in manufacturing and 1 million new jobs if he is reelected. But is the boom for real? For high-paying, skilled manufacturing jobs, it just might be.
The number of job openings for skilled factory workers has increased 38% since 2005, according to numbers from the Conference Board that measure labor demand across industries.
More strikingly, the sharpest increase in postings for skilled workers -- 152% -- has occurred in the last three or so years.
Among the states where demand is the highest for skilled workers are Ohio, Michigan, Texas, California, Illinois and Indiana, according to the Conference Board.
The employers range from small parts makers that contract with large manufacturers to mid-sized and large assemblers in the auto, aerospace and industrial metals sectors.
The hottest openings are for machinists, tool-and-die makers, computer-aided machine operators and similar specialties.
And the jobs pay well. Starting salaries are often as much as $45,000 to $50,000. Overtime, which is common because of a shortage of skilled workers, can bump that up significantly.
