Synopsis:

The All-in-One Resource for Infrastructure Jobs, Green Careers, Reliable Blue-Collar Work, and More!

Not everyone is suited to a white-collar career or wants to get the four-year degree
that these jobs typically require. But that doesn't mean you have to turn your back
on a great salary, exciting work, and a profession that commands respect.
Joe Lamacchia is proof. After graduating high school, he said no to college―and found
personal and professional success as the owner of a thriving landscaping company. He also started BlueCollarandProudofIt.com, a resource for people who want to find work in the skilled trades. Blue-collar workers build and maintain our bridges, keep our cars running, fix our plumbing, and provide vital services to every home. That's why Lamacchia
calls these 'necessary jobs.' Most blue-collar work simply cannot be outsourced to foreign
countries and it's often recession-proof. As Baby Boomers retire, blue-collar industries
are experiencing workforce shortages because there aren't enough well-trained
people to fill all of these jobs. That is, until now . . .

Blue Collar and Proud of It gives you the information you need to pursue a stable, enjoyable, well-paying job―one that makes a difference every day in your community.
Whether you're just out of high school, have been a victim of downsizing, or are looking for a new direction, Lamacchia explains all the options, outlines the necessary training, and delivers true stories of people who have made their own way in the blue-collar world. Discover a wealth of opportunities, including:

· carpentry · machinery · roofing · electricians · truck drivers · green construction
· Broadband technicians · welding · ironworkers · solar panel installation
· water conservation

About the Author: Joe Lamacchia is a forty-three-year-old father of five and owner of a $2 million-landscaping company in Newton, Massachusetts. Having never gone to college himself, he is hoping to change the prevailing mind-set that to be successful you need a college education. He has been interviewed on NPR and has been quoted in The Boston Globe, The Boston Herald, and The San Francisco Chronicle. He speaks at high school assemblies and veteran's groups. He began his website, BlueCollarandProudofIt.com, to provide resources and support for anyone looking into a blue collar job. www.bluecollarandproudofit.com.

Bridget E. Samburg is a reporter and contributor to magazines and newspapers including The Boston Globe, Brill's Content, and Yankee Magazine. She collaborated on The Long Road Home by ABC White House correspondent Martha Raddatz, and The Survivors Club, the upcoming book by Ben Sherwood, former executive producer of Good Morning America. Bridget lives in the Boston area.
