Paul Janssen, from JDC Custom Homes says, "As you all know, we need more young people to be interested in a career working in skilled trades. The obstacle, I think, we’re facing, has many different tiers but if we keep it simple, I feel it comes down to education & exposure to available options. We ( I mean people already in the trades. You and me. ) will have to do our part to make an impact on today’s young people to influence their future choices regarding their careers....How can we get more of these young people interested in our trades or how can we show their parents that careers in skilled trades can be very honorable and/or rewarding? How can you make a difference? I’m glad you asked!"
