It's a Plumb Job

1 February 2014

With the working year well and truly under way millions of Australians have gone back to jobs they hate. Whether it is boredom, stress or an epic commute, finding a new job is one of the top ten New Years’ resolutions.

According to the government’s Midyear Economic and Fiscal Outlook for 2014, there will be more than 1 million people changing jobs this year. Recent figures from the Department of Employment show that some professions are more sought after than others with plumbing being one of the most in demand professions that Australians are moving across to.

In response to these findings, Plumbing Trades Employees Union, Paddy McCrudden said “There is always work out there for a plumber.” 24-year-old Sydney plumber Luke Milne happily agreed, saying “people are always going to need water so there is always going to be work.”

Plumbers have been riding the wave of renovations that continues to wash over the housing market. “In the past year we have done a lot of emergency and call out work, but this year bathroom renovations will be the biggest area we work on I think” says Luke. “There might be a little down time during the end of the financial year, but apart from that we’ll work all the way through the year.”
