YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – City Machine Technologies Inc. has established the National Skilled Trades Day with the registrar at National Day Calendar to increase awareness about the benefits of skilled trades jobs in the U.S. and to celebrate skilled trades workers.
National Skilled Trades Day will be observed on the first Wednesday in May annually. Which fall on Hump day this year.
Over the last 30 years, interest in skilled-trades jobs has dropped drastically due to an increased push to four-year degrees from universities and colleges. Only 20% of high school seniors have indicated that they have an interest in or will enter a skilled trade job or trade school following high school graduation; this percentage is expected to remain the same or decrease over the next few years, the press release said. Over 50% of workers currently in skilled trades jobs are at or nearing retirement age and this has led to labor shortages in many skilled trades fields.
Skilled trades jobs vary from mechanics to machinists, electricians to construction workers, welders to bakers, and hairstylists to respiratory therapists.
“If we are going to create growth in our communities, we have to celebrate those in skilled trades,” says Claudia Kovach, vice president of CMT. “These jobs are fundamental to communities but are vastly underrated. It’s rewarding to roll up your sleeves and put in an honest day’s work.”
For ideas on how businesses, schools, skilled-trade workers and more can celebrate as well, CMT has posted resources on its website at CMTCompanies.com/national-skilled-trades-day.

However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and its sort of comical how you think that you've made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact you're wearing a sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room from a pile of stuff.
Me a minority women who attend college for a few years racking up mounds of debt (I'm still paying back) it's like you never finish. Yeah my parents couldn't afford to pay for me to go to school so the burden was on me. After always being told you gotta go to College. I went I left I couldn't afford it. But many moons later I went back to school Portage Lakes Career Center.
Plcc was a Vocational High school during the day but from 6pm-9pm Mon- Thur Adult trade school.
My only regret is that I didn't go Trade school after graduating high school.
