Quite simply, there are not enough people trained in these essential jobs that keep our country running smoothly. My years of experience as a trades business owner and then as a consultant to employers across the US has shown me how difficult it is to find and retain qualified people.
Today more than 1.4 million jobs are available and unfilled. Demand is expected to grow. Baby boomers are retiring from these jobs, making the gap in skilled labor even worse.
Learning a skilled trade promises to be one of the most reliable means of making a living — particularly in light of today's high unemployment levels.
