The carpentry industry has slowed down because the economy is weak. There are many carpenters that are laid off right now due to lack of carpentry work. One thing about carpentry everyone should know is if there is a big slow down in carpentry or construction as a hole then that will only mean one thing the country is at a stand still. Carpentry trade and construction in the U.S.A or anywhere is like the torch career in the Olympics once the torch stops moving there is no progress being made anywhere, and it’s just that simple.
From Ironworkers, laborers, electricians, teamsters, engineers and last but not least carpenters, if these trades have slowed down dramatically then there is no construction being done. I emphasize the carpenters because ever trade follows after the carpenters in the construction business.
If you are a carpenter that is experiencing some difficulties in finding carpentry work remember that you are not in this alone and hang in there this will not last forever. Last year around this time the industry was doing well. The economy was doing well for a while but as we know not every day can be a sunny day. But we can always try to make it one.
For carpenters that are laid off right now you can start bringing you carpentry skills to the next level by taking courses or reading books and reading this website. So when you get another job you will be more successful than you were on the last carpentry job.
