According to the Census, woemn between the ages of 20 and 34 are taking on trade jobs like never before. Although the news suggests they are shattering stereotypes, the truth is that skilled labour is currently in such short supply that the male-based trades are forced to hire women. Curiously the employers are pleasantly surprised by the women. One boss in the construction industry said this, ” We are very happy with female employees. They show up every day, they have strong attention to detail and they’re more loyal.” It’s only sad that it took them so long to see what amazing things women bring to the job.
