Don't bother becoming an apprentice, there are way too many apprentices already, the market is flooded, and when you are 4th year you will get laid off, and good luck staying busy, unless you know someone or are lucky.
Wow you must be proud- a necro-post from over 4 years ago!
Sounds like you don't have any experience in the field. If you talk to ANYONE that is actually in the trades- it is well reported on the shortage of workers in the present time and well into the future. Sorry- I google fu'd a recent article- would you like one that is at least years old like this post?
Unless.... you are a "worker" that takes no pride in the trade and just shows up to collect a paycheque takes no initiative to help the industry and would rather look fora hiding place to avoid working and keep the job progressing. Then yes, the workplace is flooded with them. Some say it's the of the new generation of millennials- I say that's BS. I have worked with some pretty good workers willing to get into the project- I, many years ago saw what the old timers now call the "millennial disease" of laziness back then- so it's not the generation thing- it's work ethics no being taught to people of any generation.
Best of luck getting over the chip on your shoulder- I don't what your issue is- and don't really care- (big hint: no one does- for anyone). As a true tradesperson your job is to look for solutions- not b!tch about problems.
