It’s no secret, the pool of available construction laborers is shrinking, and it has been for some time. As our country’s education policies favor college preparation to job skills training, fewer students are considering careers in construction. The Great Recession forced many companies and contractors to lay off workers and reduce their hiring, making the career path unfavorable to many newcomers. And as the baby boomers start retiring, the staffing shortages are just getting worse.
Now that the economy is improving and construction projects are on the rise, finding qualified workers to fill this new need is becoming increasingly difficult. Fortunately, the team at Madden Industrial Craftsman can help.
