People are absolutely flocking to the UK in order to make money which saturates the market in low skilled/ building trades. Jobs and education standards are at an all time low, depression and crime is high. I understand that people want to leave poor countries but the UK is struggling with benefitism (made that up myself), joblessness and violent crime.
I would like some feedback from immigrants currently living in the UK. Where are you from? What brought you to the UK?
I was originally planning on majoring in construction management and several people told me to get into a skilled trade. I was looking into becoming a heavy equipment operator. Is that wise? Why or why not? Also what other skilled trades are good to get into?
I am looking for some ideas about skilled trades in Canada that would appeal to a female. I am only 100 lbs and am not looking for construction or stuff like that and also something that is in demand, something that I will get a job doing. Any suggestions?
I am thinking about learning a skilled trade. What are the best ones that will still have work in a crappy economy and one that I would start my own business doing like plumber, hvac, electritian, etc. I would like to at least make $40,000 a year and have the opportunity to up my salary still.
I need to apply for my post secondary very soon and i plan on doing a skilled trade such as industrial electrician or metal fabricator, etc. Im wondering which skilled trade currently has the most demand in Canada. I don't want to come out of post secondary and have a very hard time finding a job.
I know it's best to learn the one thats right for me, but for this question's sake I am just curious.
I just graduated high school and i'm not going to college. Which skilled trade/vocation would be great to learn? Also, will I be a financially incomptetent forever compared to white-collar jobs (college degrees) if I take the trade School route?
I would like to know of a job that lets me be creative and a fair bit hands on. I don't get the best grades in school so not something that will require me to be an academic genius. A skilled trade would be excellent but any job would be ok.
I have 2 skilled trades, carpentry and metal fabrication, want to move to an area where jobs are more abundant.
Where will Canadian skilled trade workers be needed in the near future? How will they impact the Canadian economy?
(I would appreciate it if resources were supplied)
So I'm looking and wondering what skilled labor jobs are in demand?
Construction workers, Electricians, Hvac Technicians, etc here are some other questions that would be beneficial for me to know:
Do you enjoy doing what you do?
What would you suggest to someone like myself looking to get in?
Are you happy with your salary?
Does or would your work allow you to earn income on the side doing side jobs?
Any advice you have will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

What is the job situation overall like in Vancouver? I don't necessarily mean for skilled trade jobs just but just in general thank you very much! :)
I am a janitor. I work from 3pm until 11pm in an office building of a credit union. When I start, there is still staff there a few hours.
HR has directed me to remove all portable heaters from the desks. They are unsafe and overload our electrical system. HR gives me a half sheet of paper saying they can find their heaters in the HR office and they need to be taken home.
I think the office is very warm. When I get there, it is 72. I'm working and I find it a bit warm. At 6pm when everyone else is gone or leaving, it goes down to 64 automatically. It goes back up to 72 at 8am the next day automatically too. I don't control the heat.
It never fails. Black and hispanic women wearing way too little for the weather, probably way too little for appropriate office attire always have heaters. If they leave them on, as I am vacuuming, when I go by, I feel them and do what I have to do. Sometimes I see them, sometimes I don't. I don't go looking for them. If you hide it, I will never give it to HR. I'm just doing my job.
So this week I took two to HR. One black woman, the other belonged to a hispanic woman. Last year, the black woman cursed me out after the 3rd time I took her heater to HR. She complained that I was racist. By the 4th time, she threatened me with violence.
The hispanic woman smeared a bottle of jelly all over my car one night. She denies it, but a man who doesn't want to cause problems in the office saw her do it and told me to park in a different area.
I'm just a middle aged, high functioning autistic, white man doing his job and trying to get by. I'm the guy who cleans the toilet for $14 per hour with benefits. Oddly, a few years ago, I had a skilled trade that paid the same with a lot more stress. I'm OK with what I do to e********y. I really don't care what anyone thinks of me or my job.
As the janitor, I get a lot of abuse. I get a lot of "stupid" cracks made at me. I've learned to take it all in stride.
Except this. There's always 7-8 people per winter I take their heaters to HR. There's always 2-3 that I get multiple times. With very few exceptions, they are minority women. Why they don't go after HR or the company, I don't know. I guess the janitor is an easy target.
How can I protect myself from this abuse other than break the rules and get in trouble or quit, neither of which I intend to do. I don't want/need trouble. Thanks.
I'm interested in learning a skilled trade. I have a business degree and see it as an entry into a new career. Would pipefitting offer many opportunities outside of the work itself? Are there opportunities to work for piping companies etc?
