Metal Supermarkets Stresses the Need for Skilled Trades People


Patrick O’Toole of Metal Supermarkets Vaughan gets interviewed on Rogers TV’s #BrantLife to discuss a recent survey conducted by Metal Supermarkets which addresses young adults’ perceptions of trade school. The majority of 18-24 year olds don’t see attending trade school and a career in the trades as a desirable option. Patrick shares how there’s a lot of opportunity to have a great career in the trades because of the high demand and job security. He wishes high schools would provide students with more information about their options for attending trade school as opposed to university or college.

“From working at Metal Supermarkets …we really see the need for more skilled trades.” – Patrick O’Toole, Metal Supermarkets
