I firmly believe in the mentorship proogram, students graduating from trades programs need the assistance to establish themselves within their given trade. Journeypersons need the incentive to mentor as the net result for any contractor is a well trained employee who wants to stick with it and offer back to the contractor a very skilled/experienced employee.

All these programs sound wonderful but first you have to get hired. I have a son who is trained as a welder, has six years experience which doesn't count as he has no one to sign off on his hours and employers won't hire as he supposedly has no experience. The union won't take him on as they say he's a first year welder and they have too many first years. So it's the proverbial between a rock and a hard place.

Ashley, if you're going to use the word "Journeyperson," you could at least be a consistent politically correct idiotarian and use "Persontorships" too.

Any journeyman who takes this on is crazy. It may be ok for some trades but what about trades such as a crane operator or electrician? Five apprentices? Safety goes out the window.
