I appreciate that Mr Milner answers in an attempt to help; but I question if he has thought out the results of his advice. (1)Waiting for a politician to do something about the lack of plumbers is gong to be a long wait, unless a group of plumbers go to his offices, contribute money to a campaign and persist as a public pressure – some functions of a professional plumbing association. This hope of political action is one main reason for the lack of recruits. School leaders are primarily politicians. The big draw for them now is computer training. (2) The fact that plumbers are drawn to more lucrative areas indicates that it is easier to work for others than to be a businessman. If there really is no opportunity where you are, you would not be in a position to need help getting all the work done in your area, so you would not be asking for help in getting recruits. (3 )An answer to the problem is to get recruits in the manner posted above. Get new plumbers the same way you can get customers; communicate with them. Attract youth with the benefits of your trade. If you can’t convince yourself that what you are doing is profitable and worthwhile, there might be a reason no one else can be influenced to work in your trade. Meet and greet.
