PRINCE GEORGE- Finding people to fill the void in skilled trades can be tough and despite the unemployment rate of six per cent in Prince George being slightly higher than the provincial average of 4.7 per cent, one local business is doing its best to work around it.

Wolftek Industries here in Prince George is finding unique ways to fill the job openings that they have. The company is a fabrication shop that specializes in chroming, fabrication, machining, and engineering.

Despite the numbers, they do not always show what is happening within the community itself and there are extenuating circumstances that can skew the numbers.
