Help Wanted Recently, we chose five scholarship winners for the DSG Education Connection Fund (you can find out more at www.dsgfund.com). These scholarships go to young people who are looking to get into the trade industries. I remember when we set this fund up a few years back. The economy was gasping for air, and the last thing anybody wanted to talk about was getting more young people into the applicant pool. But numbers rarely lie, and all the stats pointed to a day when we would simply not have enough qualified electricians, plumbers, HVAC/R techs and utility workers to go around.

though the experts saw it coming, nobody was able to stop it. That being said, now it's time for all of us to put our heads together and fix it. Programs like the DSG Education Connection Fund are a start, but we need to do more. We need a grassroots movement. On the one hand, encourage the young people in your life to consider the trades. On the other hand, take a hard look at the compensation and benefits you are offering your people. No one will want these jobs if they aren't good jobs.

That day is here. I hear about it constantly from our customers: they need help, they need employees and they just can't find them. Manpower has become a precious commodity, and even

If you have ideas or feedback about this issue, please contact me. We need to work together to ensure the future of the trades, and we need to start now.

What's Inside

WATERWORKS Get Easy Meter Access With Coil Pit Setters From A.Y. McDonald! •

July Featured Products Tom’s Current Fast Fact DSG Outdoors Did You Know?

Read meters without the hassles – With a coil pit setter, you don't need to gain clearance from a home or business owner to access the meter. The meter is located outside the premises, so you get readings when it's convenient for you.

• Install right out of the box – A.Y. McDonald's coil pit setters come fully assembled, ready for installation. Plus, their lightweight design makes installation a one-man job (in most cases). •

Eliminate the need for modifications after the fact – These coil pit setters come with a variety of connections, control valves, box depths, lids and other options, so each pit setter is practically custom built to your specifications.
