The Contractor Fight

The Contractor Fight

In 2017, Tom Reber started The Contractor Fight to bring respect and dignity back to the trades.

By educating one contractor at a time, they're quickly restoring our industry to a place of respect in our communities. No more will the trades be looked at as a “fallback” position when college doesn’t work out. No longer will tradespeople be looked upon as uneducated and undeserving.

Doctors, lawyers, accountants, and civil servants are all looked up to and revered. Why not us?
