Celebrating The Women Of NuBlue


Showcasing the women of Ease Plumbing and Air on National Women's Day

March is celebrated as Women’s History Month and on International Women’s Day we’d like to celebrate the women at NuBlue who make a difference in our company. 

According to the 2010 U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 2.5% of plumbers were women nationwide. Although women account for more than 50% of all workers within several industries, they are widely underrepresented in the trades. 

But this doesn’t have to be the case. 

High school students were recently polled in a National Kitchen & Bath Association survey and the data found that the interest in a skilled trade career was almost as high for females as it was for males. 

Trades are an excellent opportunity for women to build a successful career without accumulating substantial debt from a four-year college. While the exact number can vary based on the market, the average salary for a plumber in the U.S. in 2019 reached $56,486. 

Not only this, but the average age of tradesmen is now a person in his/her 50s. The demand for skilled tradesmen is increasing but the supply is decreasing.  USA Today reports that by 2028, 3 million trade jobs will be open. 

Many women are seeing the need for skilled technicians and also how you can make a good living while doing it. Women like Nikki are taking advantage of this opportunity. 

Nikki is one of NuBlue’s skilled apprentices. On the job, she is constantly praised for her workmanship, knowledge and professionalism. Her uplifting spirit is contagious and makes everyone want to do their job better. 

“Matt & Nikki with NuBlue Plumbing was AWESOME! They showed up in a pinch, arrived promptly, were friendly, and competently fixed my plumbing issues without breaking the bank. Thanks Matt, Nikki, and NuBlue Plumbing.”

It comes as no surprise that there are other women on our team who put in work behind the scenes. Women like Jayna, Tasha and Stephanie.

These ladies are the voice of NuBlue, they’re the ones who help our technicians get to you. Without them, NuBlue wouldn’t have a voice. As first impressions ambassadors, they help to figure out how NuBlue can help you and then they get the right people out to the job. When you call with a plumbing or HVAC issue, Jayna, Tasha and Stephanie will be the first people to put your mind at ease. 

NuBlue Plumbing and Air wouldn’t be able to provide top-of-the line plumbing and HVAC service to the Charlotte/Mecklenburg area if it were not for the women on our team. Today and every day, we are thankful to have these women on our team. 

Nikki, Jayna, Tasha and Stephanie, thank you for putting our minds at ease.
