  • Help Josh

    Josh, do you have a copy of the survey that Ridgid did on high schools students and career choices? I saved it somewhere on some computer or drive or flash stick and I'll be damned if I can find it now. I'm writing and article for PM and would like to reference some of the data.

        I HAVE ATTACHED what I think your looking for to the bottom of this thread:

        here is the direct link:

        SURVEY OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS REVEALS CAREERS IN THE SKILLED ...



        SURVEY OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS REVEALS CAREERS IN THE SKILLED TRADES ARE AT BOTTOM OF THE LIST
        A RIDGID Survey Reveals Top and Bottom Career Paths
        Elyria, Ohio—February 4, 2009—A recent survey by RIDGID, a leading supplier of professional grade tools, reveals that a scant six percent of high school students hope to have a future career in the skilled trades—defined as plumbers, carpenters, electricians, heating, ventilation or air conditioning installers, or repair people.




        Some MORE stats you might be interested in:

        http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos211.htm#outlook

        Average employment growth is projected. Job opportunities are expected to be very good, especially for workers with welding experience.
        Employment change. Employment of pipelayers, plumbers, pipefitters, and steamfitters is expected to grow 10 percent between 2006 and 2016, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Demand for plumbers will stem from new construction and building renovation

        Can New Programs Fix America's Plumber Drain?

        http://www.popularmechanics.com/home...t/4305487.html

        A new survey detects a slow leak in the supply of skilled American plumbers. Will manufacturers pouring money into education help refill the labor pool?

        Hope that helps!

                Sorry if this is off topic, but it is sad when the young ones don't think it is cool to work. I guess "work" should be manual labor. Told some people a while back, the man digging ditches will always have a job, because nobody wants to get dirty. If you are not afraid to work, you will always have a job.
