America is dealing with a prolonged electrician shortage. The need for proven craftsmen continues to rise as more electricians are required at construction and alternative energy jobsites, especially for commercial wiring projects and solar panel installations.
At Tradesmen International, we specialize in connecting you with field-proven, dedicated and safety-minded craftsmen who have the skills to complete the job on time and within budget. We help contractors not only resolve their construction worker shortage challenges, but also increase productivity and reduce labor-related costs.
How Does the Demand for Electricians Affect Job Outlook?
The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects employment of electricians will grow through 2026. A strong economy, increased construction costs and alternative energy sources will drive the demand for electricians.
As the demand for electricians continues to grow, contractors will require skilled electricians to supplement their core workforce. Electricians may see increased job opportunities at a range of jobsites, including:
- Commercial buildings
- Government sites
- Manufacturing companies
- Power plants
- Residential homes
- Other jobsites where wiring and lighting play a major role
The electrician shortage gives trained electricians an employment advantage because countless contractors and jobsite managers require their skills. Alternately, many contractors may struggle to meet their temporary labor staffing needs with a solution that is high quality and dependable.
