Will this recession ever end? Eventually things will get better and the economy will improve, but perhaps you should brace yourself for the reality that things may never return to the glory days of a few short years ago. While we in the good ole US have recovered from hard times before, this time may be different. We no longer have a strong manufacturing industry, we hardly make anything here now days. Tons of technology jobs have been outsourced and the airline industry is in decline.
So, what can you do to protect your financial future? While most other occupations leave one looking over your shoulder, waiting for the axe to fall, careers in the skilled trades continue to thrive. Get yourself some HVAC Training, or perhaps learn how to be a professional plumber or electrician. Maybe working on cars sounds more your speed? Automotive mechanics and body repair specialists can now make a very nice living. Yes, Skilled Trades are Up, Up, UP.
