“There is a labor shortage in many areas of the trade industries,” said DSG CEO Paul Kennedy. “These occupations are an essential part of the nation’s workforce, and it’s time to dispel the myths about working in the trades. These are interesting, well-paying jobs which can result in immediate employment even while going to school.”
