Manufactured Housing’s Labor Day, Celebrating Those That Do the Work

September 3rd, 2018 Comments off

Manufactured housing trade media often gives attention to owners, managers, executives, investors, and experts. Policy-makers, advocates, attorneys, elected or appointed officials are among those that get attention too.  Sales people get articles…but what about general or office ‘labor?’

 

So, it’s fitting that on this Labor Day, that the Daily Business News on MHProNews acknowledges with respect and thanks those that work:

·        inside a factory,

·        preparing a home site,

·        transporting,

·        installing a home, 

·        service, refurb, or repair,

·        maintaining the grounds,

·        installing or updating infrastructure,

·        doing utilities,

·        inspections,

·        or any other office, indoor, or outdoor work…

…today’s the day to celebrate the workers.

 

With the markets closed today, this seemed like a fitting time to publish an article with a simple yet sincere message. 

 

Hats off to those – in companies of all sizes – who do the doing. 

 

Without skilled labor provided by tens of thousands of good people like you, there would be no manufactured home – or any other – industry.

At MHProNews, we salute you and your work! ##   (News, analysis, and commentary.)

The Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) has released its latest Washington Update, an exclusive report and analysis that addresses key issues with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Covered in this MHARR report:

 

  • HUD Installation Power Grab Intensifies

 

  • MHARR To FHFA: Stop GSEs’ Discrimination Against MH and

 

  • U.S. Tariff Imposed on Canadian Lumber

 

MHARR has received numerous inquiries from industry members and other HUD program stakeholders regarding a rapidly-widening power grab by program administrators to effectively federalize installation regulation in all 50 states,” says MHARR in the report.

HUD, and some uninformed elements within the industry, excuse this gross over reach as a consequence of the structure and language of the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act of 2000.”

The report also provides insight on the Canadian lumber tariffs.

After threatening to impose trade duties on goods imported from China and Mexico during the presidential election campaign in 2016, the administration announced its first new tariff on imported goods in a statement issued by Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on April 24, 2017,” says MHARR in the report.

While the imposition of the Canadian lumber tariff caps a period of serious economic uncertainty for the residential construction industry, increases in home prices driven by higher supply costs for basic raw materials, such as wood, will have a magnified impact on the highly-priced sensitive manufactured housing market.”
