Labor Shortage Solutions: The Next Generation

Labor Shortage Solutions: The Next Generation

Wednesday, April 17, 2019

Luci Rawe joined a roundtable discussion sponsored by the Builders and Remodelers Association of Greater Boston (BRAGB) about the labor shortage facing our industry. Although home building and remodeling are booming, businesses including Byggmeister, are struggling to find and retain skilled workers, particularly in the field. 

The panel brought together practitioners, policy makers, and educators to discuss how we can collaborate to develop the next generation of tradespeople. Also participating on the panel were Rosalyn Acosta, Secretary of Labor for the Commonwealth; Ed Brady, President of the Home Builders Institute; and Josh Otlin, Principal of Milford High School.
