The Future of Plumbing
For every 4 skilled workers that leave the construction industry, only 1 is entering the field.
The future of Plumbing is at risk, and it’s our job, now more than ever, to help encourage young people to enter the work force. The PHCC and PHCC Educational Foundation have put together a task force specifically designed to attract and train the next generation of workers. There are many helpful tools approved by the U.S. Dept of Labor including apprentice programs, eLearning options, instructor resources, career videos and scholarships. Each state addresses the issue in their own way, for more information on how you can help please visit phccweb.org.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics is predicting plumbing employment opportunities to grow faster than average and the need for plumbers will heighten even further. It is the perfect time to enter the plumbing field. It’s a skilled craft that national public health depends upon, and the demand is high with steady work. Plus, the pay scale is well above the standard minimum wage, and doesn’t require a boatload of college loans.
The Plumbing Job
The job involves an incredible amount of responsibility by fixing homeowner’s leaks, and properly installing sanitation. Americans depend on sanitary conditions and drink potable water because of the work done by Licensed Plumbers. Our country needs plumbers and in order to fix the plumbing profession stereotype, we need to flood the marketplace with skilled tradesmen.
