It’s Not Just a Job: Choosing a Career in the Trades Can Be Your Path to Success

The trade industry in this country – and others around the world – are the lifeblood upon which generations of families have built their lives. Our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents made their livings with their hands and helped to build the infrastructure of our nation. It gave them great pride to say that they built something.

Today, however, there is a negative perception of becoming a tradesperson. Children have been taught that to get a decent-paying, career-worthy job, they need to go to college and get a bachelor’s degree. That prevailing perception is contributing to a shortage of skilled labor for the trades, and causing many young people to miss out on the opportunity for a well-paying job which they can build into a lifelong and lucrative career.
