We need to offer kids other options and not put a stigma on the trades. They are a great option for many kids and should be expanded and promoted.
Agree. But I must add many currently in the trades refuse to “deal with” a apprentice. Years past, you would see an individual doing what was asked of him or her along side a tradesman. Somehow that was dropped. When asked, I was told “why would I want to train someone then just have them leave for a dollar more”? Sounds to be me it’s a lack of people skills, not work skills.
