GetElectric,
I can't speak personally for Australia, itself, but I do know that we can't beg, borrow or steal Electricians over here in New Zealand!.
We are flat out over here at the moment, there just aren't enough hours in the day or week, these days.
The consequence of a near-10 year lull in Apprentice training.
