As the skilled labor shortage continues, tradespeople are in high demand and can earn well beyond the wages of college graduates. The union construction industry invests in standardized apprenticeship programs specified for each trade which creates a safe, educational environment for hands-on and classroom learning.
The best part of this career path is that apprentices receive their three-to-five-year apprenticeship training at NO COST while also being paid to work for a local contractor. Instead of accumulating costly college debt, apprentices are earning money while receiving a valuable “trades degree”.
