C & C Heating & Air Conditioning urges students to choose the skilled trades as a career

The Detroit ~ On National Skilled Trades Day, May 3, C & C Heating & Air Conditioning is encouraging parents and teachers to promote the skilled trades industry to high schoolers. Dayna Hottle, general manager of C & C Heating and Air Conditioning, said that due to the Baby Boomers retiring, there is a labor shortage in the skilled trades industry and plenty of jobs available.

Reports show that the number of applicants for technical jobs dropped by 49% between 2020 and 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Hottle said that now that people are going back to work and school, a vocational school would be a great choice for many young people. She added that trade schools are less expensive than college and studies have shown that most people in the trades start off making more money than those with college degrees.

National Skilled Trades Day was created by City Machine Technologies, Inc. in 2019 to raise awareness about the skilled trades deficit in the United States and honor those who work in the profession. Hottle said these are the people we call when our heat is broken, our sinks are clogged or we need to construct a new home or business.

"It's the skilled trades that keep the United States running," she said, "and we'd like to see more people enter into its ranks." For more information about C & C Heating & Air Conditioning, call (586) 439-3319.
