Without question, the majority of tradies who work in Canberra do a pretty decent job. They are well paid and work long hours, effectively keeping the ACT economy afloat in these difficult economic times. However, there is a rumour circulating Canberra regarding shoddy workmanship carried out by inexperienced and under-qualified tradies. Indeed, as the rumour would have it, the tradies in question are of European origin, who have forged their work documents in order to carry out tasks in Canberra. Given the housing shortage in the Nation’s Capital, they are almost guaranteed work.
Are there any fellow rioter’s who have experienced shoddy work carried out by these tradies, in particular electric work in the newer suburbs? Hopefully these rumours are not true, but if they are, the fault certainly lies with the ACT Government for allowing this activity to flourish. It will be interesting to observe peoples reactions.
