Laser Plumbing Apprentice Jade Morris is setting a strong example for the next generation of female tradies.

In 2011, there were just 638 female plumbers and 1,432 female electricians registered in Australia, representing less than 2% of the workforce in trade industries.  And despite an increasing awareness of the threat of skilled trade shortages looming with the retirement of baby boomers, there has been little change in the number of women entering these trades since the 1980's.
