I read an article out of the US this week bemoaning the fact that there’s a trade skills shortage due to the pressure put on young people in recent years to go to university after high school and train for a professional career, regardless of aptitude and interest. It sounded in many ways like a problem we have in Australia.

Sure, we know that Australia’s current skills shortage is partly due to short term increases in building activity over the past 12 months – we’ve had national residential commencements increase by more than 41% over the past three years, which has put pressure on bricklayer supply
