Canada is not alone
America Needs Skilled Tradespeople

Our Skilled Trade dilemma is echoed in the United States. Get yourself involved or encourage someone you know to get involved with a skilled trade today. You will always have work, job security, and a decent rate of pay......  

Here is the American perspective.

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C., Sept. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — America has a shortage of professional tradesmen. According to ManpowerGroup’s 2012 report, our nation’s number one category of the hardest jobs to fill is that of skilled tradesmen. The Bureau of Labor Statistics has reported that more than one third of skilled tradesmen are over the age of 50. In fact, for every three tradesmen who retire, there’s only one skilled person trained to perform the work. These trends could mean trouble for a rebounding America. At the heart of this shortfall of plumbers, welders, roofers, masons, auto mechanics and other skilled workers is a culture that fails to honor the hard work that these men and women do every day, despite job openings and opportunities to earn good wages as tradesmen.
