AMERICA DEPENDS ON ITS SKILLED TRADESMEN. And right now, all across the country, the construction industry is getting older—and smaller. The goal of Go Build is to keep our nation’s workforce strong a
nd steady, and that starts by encouraging our students to consider a career in construction. The jobs are available, the benefits are many—the decision is yours.
- 87% of apprentices find jobs when they’re finished
- The average wage for qualified workers is $50,000+
- The national average age of a construction tradesman today is 45.
Go Build is a collaboration between trade associations and organized labor to address the current skills gap and change perceptions in students, parents and educators by
encouraging capable young minds to consider the benefits of a career in the skilled trades.
