The skilled trades are in peril! too many newbies fail to appreciate the necessary attention to detail required; it's NOT "from the neck down" work (not by a long shot!). In spite of need, I find entirely too many candidates unwilling to do what they must do to achieve anything close to "mastery" of basic skills. It's discouraging for me. NO ONE wants to do the work required to learn a trade that's reliable, increasingly in demand, and offers the luxury of self-employment!
