No wonder apprentice numbers are going down. I have put through many apprentices in my time but over the last few years we have lost not only tradesmen but also apprentices to the mining industry (even before they qualify). I will not be training any more apprentices... just to have the mining companies poach them. We will continue to pay more and more for our tradesmen adding to inflation while the mining companies just can't get the ore out of the ground fast enough to the detriment of all of us in the metro area. I say to the mining companies TRAIN YOUR OWN APPRENTICES!
