Shortage of welders coming

March 10, 2008
About 450,000 welding jobs will be available by 2014, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, and at least one Indiana company is already experiencing a shortfall of workers, reports The Journal Gazette of Fort Wayne.

Welders at Warsaw Engineering and Fabricating Inc. are working overtime to keep up with production and officials there say they'd hire 10 workers if they could find qualified candidates.

Some companies say a misconception that welding is a dirty job done in factories might be deterring some people from pursuing the career.
