Addressing the Skilled Labor Gap

0

In today’s technology-driven times, there is critical need for skilled tradespeople. Electrical, plumbing and carpentry jobs are projected to see double-digit growth rates in the approaching years but will lack qualified men & women to fill them.  That’s why The Home Depot Foundation recently announced it was investing $50 million to train 20,000 skilled men and women to work in the industry pipeline by 2028.  The funds will flow through the Home Builders Institute to train veterans and U.S. Army soldiers who will soon be returning to civilian life, high school students and disadvantaged youth.
