The current shortage of skilled workers is causing the Building Trades to increase their recruitment efforts to bring in and train good people. Pay and benefits are the same for women and men and jobs are plentiful. Steamfitters Local 601 is one of several trades taking proactive steps in the recruitment of apprentices, including women. In today’s video from Building Wisconsin TV, we’ll tour the newly completed Steamfitters Local 601 Training Center in Madison WI. Host Stuart Keith meets with Joel Zielke and Dave Singer from Steamfitters Local 601 who talk about the construction process and show the completed facility.
