CN mental health campaign shortlisted for national award


I'm not at all surprised by these statistics. We've been through 3 recessions, many subcontractors have suffered from late or non-payment and shabby treatment by certain large main contractors. British workers have lost their jobs because of a massive influx of migrant labour who have been prepared to work for peanuts. Now these same companies are complaining there will be a shortage of skilled labour but what did they expect? Skilled construction workers have never been given the respect that they deserve for their hard work and this has to change. In recent years they have been seen as expendable, they never know whether they will have work for the foreseeable future. No wonder there are so many mental health issues.
