What is A Tradesman in Australia?
A tradesman or trades person is a skilled manual worker in a particular trade or craft. Economically and socially, a tradesman's status is considered as a professional, with a high degree of both practical and theoretical knowledge of his or her trade. In cultures where professional careers are highly prized, there is a shortage of skilled manual workers, leading to lucrative niche markets in the trades.
