Builder Shortage

The London Olympics organisers have put out a call for 182,000 construction workers, as they scramble to complete the construction of the Olympics venues.

Seemingly there is also a requirement for 15,000 more plumbers by 2012.

The Construction Skills Network, which says the demand will peak in 2011, is predicting that there will be a need for 2.8 million people to be working in the construction industry across the UK in the run up to the Olympics.

Given the shortage of suitably qualified, honest, plumbers and builders in the UK at the best of times I wonder how they will find so many in such a short space of time.
