Hurricane Sandy

It will be the tradesmen (and women) who repair the cities after Hurricane Sandy. The first responders and reporters are given accolades as they should but they fail to mention that it will be the trades people that will put the cities back together. The electricians, plumbers, carpenters, steel workers, iron workers, machinist, cable workers, and more. Give them the respect and accolades they deserve for the comforts they give us and maintain for us.

The demands pertaining to the oil industry.

One of the reasons for the increase in demand for welders, machinist, electricians, steel workers and other such positions is because of the increase of work in the oil industry as they begin to work the soon to be oil fields of North and South Dakota, Wyoming, and Montana. Does anyone else have more information about these developments?      Julia McCoy Pavlicek

Putting Sexy Back in Votech vs. Putting Respect Back in Votech, Vocational Education and Trades

Aside

I’m writing a new book called “Putting Sexy Back in Votech, Vocational Trades and Education”. I would like to see the workers that work in the vocational trades get the respect they deserve as the sexy and hard working individuals they are. These are America’s electricians, plumbers, carpenters, sheet metal workers, machinist, dry wallers, iron workers, welders, mechanics, heavy machine operators, and all the other trades that have the artistry to work with their hands to build the things that we take for granted.
