SUGAR LAND, Texas, April 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Written by John Egan for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--In the 1960s, a folksinger suggested young people going to San Francisco should wear some flowers in their hair. These days, industrial supply-chain managers and procurement executives with projects in San Francisco might want to bring some boilermakers, millwrights and operators, as there's a shortage of those skilled craft laborers in that area.
The metropolitan San Francisco area has a significant shortage of workers who can operate backhoes, bulldozers, excavators, wheel loaders and other heavy equipment, according to Industrial Info's proprietary Labor Duration Geolocator. That shortfall is expected to continue for several years. Boilermakers also are in short supply, as are millwrights, iron workers and instrumentation and electrical technicians.
This is the second in a series of articles on the demand for and the supply of skilled craft labor in various markets around the U.S. For details, view the entire article by subscribing to Industrial Info's Premium Industry News, or browse other breaking industrial news stories at www.industrialinfo.com.
