Did you know? There is a major labor shortage in the United States right now and this includes the HVAC industry. Are you wondering why this is not only happening but also why it’s happening right now? Let us tell you!
Let’s go back in time. Historically, for people growing up in the earlier days (50s through the 80s), it was common for one or multiple relatives to work in the trades. So, it felt natural when the children growing up also chose a similar career path. Many of these Baby Boomers are soon retiring which is part of the cause of the shortage itself.
Plus, today, many people growing up are taking their own career path instead of following their family’s past. There are not only many more opportunities out there today, there are also plenty of new and fresh jobs out there that are outside the labor industry. The internet and all it provides us with also makes it a bit easier to find different jobs around their city than it was in previous years.
Although the labor shortage may seem a little scary right now, we want to remind you of what’s being done to end it. According to the 2018 Construction Hiring and Business Outlook Survey, conducted by Sage and the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), 75 percent of surveyed firms are planning to hire more workers in 2018. Safe to say, Bonfe is one of those firms.
