SkilledHub- The fastest and easiest way of finding Skilled Professionals


Do you really consider dusting off the Yellow Pages at home when you need to look for a skilled contractor? Or do you prefer sticking to the local newspaper?

Skilled Trades Jobs Booming!


There appears to be a new job boom beginning. Many of the careers that are becoming available have starting wages at $15 to $17 per hour. Many of the trade schools are having employers head hunt for students before they even graduate. This is a sign for a solid market in skilled trade jobs.

Tradespeople are highly skilled and hardworking professionals. They have an entrepreneurial mind set that is helping them gain recognition that they have needed for a long time. Their field is highly in demand around the world, it requires a lot of skill to be a tradesperson.


Even though you paid an arm and a leg for getting a project done around your house or a new part installed in your vehicle, well…. Just wait… pretty soon you may have to finance simple jobs like changing brake pads…


The great loss of the skilled trades people in the near future since many of the baby-boomers will be retiring will directly lead to higher costs. If you thought prices were too high… just wait… you ain’t seen nothing yet. The prices for getting any type of job done by a skilled trades person is going to way too overpriced since there will only be a few players in the field and they can charge whatever they want and people will have to pay to get the work done. The less the players in the field the higher the companies can charge. This is ridiculous, but true. You can see this when you go to a grocery store with lots of a particular product and you have more selection based on quality and price. That is why many people prefer to shop large grocery stores/supercentres since they have the cheapest prices and largest selection. People need to be able to have a choice of skilled trades person when trying to get a job done
