Value Of The Trades
Sacramento Sparks Reno Welding Supply
Modern day technology has taken over many industries and has put some workers out of a job completely. It is believed by many nowadays that without a college degree you will not have the necessary skills and education to find success. That could not be further from the truth. College is not for everyone and if you believe that learning a trade like welding, electric, or HVAC interests you there is no doubt that you can have a successful career.
The need for welders continues to increase. Cities and small towns throughout the country reportedly need to improve their infrastructure. Things like railways, roads, water systems, airports, and other critical infrastructure need replacement or repair. It is estimated that over $2 trillion in funding will need to be invested in modernizing the nation’s infrastructure by 2025 alone.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, electrician jobs are expected to grow by 9.1% from 2022 to 2030. This is higher than the 7.7% growth rate projected for all other occupations. The increased demand for electricians is largely driven by an increase in devices, buildings, and vehicles that rely on electricity. People across the country are using more electricity than ever before and that means more electricians are needed to install and maintain these electrical systems.
HVAC technicians have a demand in every state. People across the U.S. have HVAC systems, and technicians are required to keep them running. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that the jobs in this sector will grow by 4% by 2029. With each new technological advancement in the HVAC sector, an HVAC technician has to be part of the building and installation of the system. Almost all homes in the U.S. have HVAC technology and its maintenance is only possible through specialists.
Welders, electricians, and HVAC technician jobs are not going anywhere but up. Technology in these industries will help with things like efficiency and safety but will not take over jobs completely. If any of these trades interest you now is the right time to get started!
