Mahoning Valley Skilled Trades Expo Helps Fill Workforce Gaps

CANFIELD, Ohio — The skilled trades will have 1 million fewer workers than they’ll need by 2024 says Gary Hartman of the Builders Association of Eastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania.

Which is why events like the Mahoning Valley Skilled Trades Expo, which will introduce some 5,000 area students to the trades, are a vital part of the long-term solution, he says.
