Teenagers are being encouraged into a career in Construction

careerA recent article in the Daily Mail has said how younger people should aspire for a career in the construction industry rather than Lawyers etc. The earning capacity of someone in the building trade is a lot higher than some other professions these days. This is down to the skills shortage along with the high volume of house building work ongoing across the UK.

The Daily Mail reads:

“All over Britain, skilled tradesmen are now bringing home up to six times the average wage. A junior doctor earns £23,000 a year, working night shifts and long hours. A newly qualified sparky, by contrast, can easily make £1,500 a week.”
