Ep 29. Skilled Worker & Trades Shortage and Job Security with Tradesmen International
Tradesmen International serves industries that include construction, manufacturing, power, heavy industry, mining, and skilled workers in both the United States and Canadian markets. Since 1992 when Joseph O. Wesley, an electrical contractor from Northeast Ohio, recognized first-hand the vast need for a new construction staffing paradigm to deliver superior construction labour to the contractor’s workforce they have expanded to 200 offices in the United States and now have an office in Canada which David hopes will increase to eight or nine. Labour is always a major cost on any project and efficiency to maximize profits is always the goal. The type of service Tradesmen International provides leads to the question…do we truly have a labour shortage for skilled workers and trades or do we have an efficiency shortage that leads to employment volatility?
