11:40 am
see metal fabricators and what i'm excited about in oakland right now is the opportunity that we have to build real carrier pathways for our young people in oakland last week, i violated two manufacturing companies with one and 50 young people this is the 6 manufacturing company in oakland last week to expose them to what it looks like to work with the manufacturing sector right now how can we go ahead exist and see that right now these are jobs that involve technology their creativity and can build things with their hand and how can we can build the gives me economy we're talking about. >> thank you, kate great to be here and real estate on amazing site with mayor ed lee and supervisor cowen really their
11:41 am
leadership in making this happen i know there are big plans ahead but in the meanwhile great place to hang and meet and offers a low cost option for the manufactured working with free air conditioning we had a strong position manufacturing stand today and really around initiative products a century ago it was around food and sfo's invented the ego waffle if you didn't think san jose was cool but ask your kids we are, of course, much more focused on vance manufacturing we'll hear from companies like western residual around the haven't technologies they're
11:42 am
doing a lot of prototypes and eventual at some point that process will be offshore we know that a significant amount can be made here and benefit enormously from obviously all that is happening in the valley 5 thousand people in the city of san jose that are engaged in manufacturing today and a great resource of highway jobs out on the average and a great pathway for middle-income so we'll bullish on our tech great and a pleasure to be up here and mayor ed lee that looks like the beginning of every one of my sons video games it is existing i'm waiting for the killer to come out of one of the walls keeping an eye on on this i think the thing that makes me proud of our fremont with the
11:43 am
manufacturing road is not where we are right now but where we were a few years ago just a few years ago 4 seven hundred people lost their jobs businesses closed their doors it is growing and producing those autos you may have heard of testing last and 6 thousand people working in that manufacturing this shows where the manufacturing is strong. >> (clapping.) >> my friend daniel from tesla we're very proud is to be the home of tesla those numbers make that the largest manufacturers in the state of california but not just that the companies that are around that exciting into the tesla phenomena we have golden gate you've met them this is the companies that are feeding into the tesla and produce the jobs of future
11:44 am
talked about numbers in fremont one out of every four jobs in fremont is connected to manufacturing this is huge that is good paying and middle-class jobs income grow we're excited about one of the things that makes us unique is that that ability to grow we done a pretty good job of preserving going forward pressure on that i know my colleagues did the same one of the things going forward we cherish and have that room to grow to make sure you can solve tomorrow problems with stricken out ways to so jobs. >> great to follow bill i was told in i came here each of us mayors and x mayors will get a tesla (laughter) daniel has the max ma
11:45 am
kate thank you for being part of this i want to add my thanks to the sponsors that are here putting this together and acknowledge supervisor malia cowen is malia still here all right. >> (clapping.) >> how. >> now she's the mayor of district 10 i can say that has a second term mayor change the title i want to say thank you to every single mayor this is the first time we've literally broken bread together. >> but anyway, and for good reason when i been these mayors i think about urban savings account i will say that we're all going both struggling and vanls the cities when it comes to job creation and manufacturing in particular i think we're not building
11:46 am
citizens and villages it is job creation it is about people and i look around this room we've got the people in finance, city, foundations that are trying to help us with our vision and you've got people who are trying out things and companies that are but making things as the maker movement but to put them in the context of more than manufacturing how to support each other and more and more us mayors in the entire bay area will be working closely together we have to understand the skies of supply change of manufacturing not do everything in one city anymore but require a bay area approach what we recognize i can't manufacturer cars i have no room
11:47 am
unless a really, really small car. (laughter) but we're going to be proud of our breweries and our chocolates and proud of our tie i'm wearing in particular because blue is mustered and designed and made here in san francisco and we could be selling products as i said in the video that the people around the world would love to have when we put our city label that are on things made here an international constituency i think some of the other brands out find europe 19 are meeting their course and people buy something here that has san francisco made label on it they'll feel proud of that is high quality whether the fashion industry that we are trying to
11:48 am
resurrect we used to have a lot of fashion here it didn't disappear but gone on hiatus we're doing not mass manufacturing but designs with fashion like the accessories movement sincerely erratics and world-class stuff made very we have over 6 hundred manufacturing companies in san francisco they're looking for the talent that can coming out come out not net of the university but talent from the college and city college where we're making tremendous invests of people that don't have to have 4 year degrees job creation is about a village coming together to make sure it happens land use issues we have to deal with we're going to go into more detail >> that's a great cigarette
11:49 am
way at the end of the day my whole staff and most of my partners thinking about manufacturers are the opportunity for people it really comes down to the people the people that work in those companies it is the possibility of shared ownership and diverse ownership of those companies one of my farther i love sharing when i travel east for the belt where i'm from more than 50 percent of the manufactured in san francisco are owned by women and i think outside the box as a bellwether. >> (clapping.) >> that's a well weather inform what we're capable of in the bay area one program i heard about i'm excited to learn more as we talk about sharing mayor is the san francisco works one of the real opportunity and challenges in the data we collected ask that we both struggle with legacy manufacturers whether
11:50 am
environment or food having amazing workforce and not net the next generation coming up behind them and manufacturing with a skill so tells you more about what you guys are trying to do to address that. >> actually certainly i think we recognize the economic issue how we address the growing gap between rich and poor not more acute with the cost of living here in san francisco for the opportunities to provide a path with jobs and manufacturing we launched an effort with la jolla partners and with the future being a key participate and, of course, your manufactured our employers and seeing how we can focus on both retraining adults and getting to our - for them not cool to be a manufacturer and we need to demonstrate to
11:51 am
them there are great opportunities and great careers not just about amy there is cool stuff out there and so far we've had great success like some have participated in hiring over the summer and ultimately offering some of the young adults permanent jobs that is great for them for the future work program one hundred folks trained and employed in advanced manufacturing and really know that requires great and greater skills not the manufacturing line they need to have advanced skills around understanding computer and using advanced technologies and their skills are demanded at the assembly level so we wanted to partner with a community private sector to get folks on the assembly line or folks into the assembly line the skills for the advanced
11:52 am
manufacturers there is significant growth one of the things we also learned even if we talk about the work of assembly line it is different than it used to be and working on an assembly line is working with 20 people not necessarily 2 hundred people one thing that is similar across the city a broad range for the two and three person shop and old oakland is a better example of having that in the same city i know that you have done and personally as the leadership in kind of external lists the food manufacturing and connect it back to the community as we think about how to make it easier for folks to understand what's that journey been like. >> in oakland the food and beverages industry has allowed us to what i think we all need to do is make this an enticing
11:53 am
field for everyone to understand how different the industry is now so we've used it as a creativity marking tool to fill the notch around the food and beverages in oakland and created a food trail along the waterfront to have a mc-2 over 50 sites that people can come and ride their bikes - >> how many people have done that. >> by the next time next year. >> we're on it. >> (laughter). >> you can bike along the food trail 50 sites and see food and visit our urban wineries a trail as well and it allows us to market oakland in this very specialized way and also talk about what a restauranteur industry we have in oakland been a creative way i think to talk about the
11:54 am
manufacturing sector in a different way. >> this whole initiate wouldn't have been possible self-we hadn't had the blessing of our own mayor sfmade is progressively in san francisco and a leader that hadn't only spider us but gourjd us to see what we can do collectively across the region why would you do that (laughter). >> first of all, i grew up in a family were any mom was a seamstresses used to someone as a head of the 40ur8d making things seeing the delight in her eyes she used to do sky jackets with the do you think she was proud of stitch if you got the right stitches that don't cough the details like that effect our
11:55 am
whole life i paid attention to a lot of the details because you train hand to use coordination with the speed and when they're sold their seed well, you take pride in the brand that's what the workforce in the manufacturing industry feel they feel they own the product where it is sold and resold they get this product so a personal aspect of that kind of drove me to pay attention particularly when it came to fashioned so many other things are happen that cause our space to be reused in a productive way when you think of obesity when you think that i know restaurant - they're doing skateboards now the overlay of technology cat
11:56 am
boards are not made with just a material but an overlay of electronics like at circa in the film you look at that assembly line and the neat part of it they have new types of machineryy that guide provision of cutting, that provision helps because when you have a whole piece of laefrp and you're making a belt there is a lot of center unused leather with the machinery they can position that belt design into the leather to get twice as much out of one piece an overlay computerized accuracy of that belt so switching 19 stitching it is still part of manufacturing of that apparel but overlayed by great level of technology that helps with quality with the
11:57 am
design, with the environment for the use of those materials there are incredible tributes of state of mind we have to wrap up i'd like to hang out but how often do we get four cities together it is looking at we need to connect each other capabilities together we have garment manufactured in oakland and san francisco but not the electronics manufacturing and scale for example, you might have in san jose that's one opportunity so the workforce which resides all over the bay area and we are excited about the bart station in fremont i think is one of the countries first transit oriented industrial elephant taking the development to a whole new level and, yes we can clap for that.
11:58 am
>> (clapping.) >> so let me ask in conclusion, this may be one the harder requests of the recognized people in 3 words - >> not possible. >> each something that you would most be existed about as we looked at a few years together. >> in manufacturing. >> 3 words mr. mayor. >> build be talent, pipeline. >> internet of things. >> (laughter). >> wow. it's about the young people for me >> support support more people. >> thank you
11:59 am
12:00 pm
