THE Youth Factor
Currently there are 4 generations on job-sites. 50% of the 360,000 BC Construction Trades are retiring and the traditional 19-25 years olds we have all traditionally relied on were not born, and will continue to decline by 7% over the next 10 years. No company large or small is immuned from the impending labour shortage.

Baby-Boomers, Generation X and their kids the Millenials, are already working. The new generation workforce required is Generation Z ,coming out of school.
