The average age of a skilled trade worker is 55 years old, and they are thinking about retirement. We need new workers to refill these positions.
Many skilled trades jobs only require a certificate, so that means you can be on your way to making good money sooner rather than later. Check out your local career and technical center for their class offerings. There are skilled trades jobs all around, so whether you wanted to stay in the area or find a warmer climate, there’s a job for you.
