In today's economy, building trades are seeing a decrease in young adults choosing to begin a career in the labor force. The majority of young adults are choosing to follow the path of a four year university. After completing a four-year program, many young adults have deep student loan debt and an uncertain career future. In order to cover these student loans and daily living expenses, many recent college grads face underemployment rather than finding a position in their desired field.

There are many arguments in favor of young people entering the construction industry, and the importance of vocational education in schools. This isn't limited to men, but also the opportunity for women to get involved in the field. Kayleen McCabe is a 30-year-old licensed contractor who makes a great case for maintaining vocational eduction in our schools.

Locally, Madison Area Builders Association is working hard to educate young people and the community about the various career opportunities in the construction industry. Click here to learn about local career opportunities and hear from some of Madison's top construction professionals.
