It is a It is. It is absolutely almost to the crisis point right now. So when you when, when you're sending your kids to go get an English degree or history, Major. Whatever. Think twice. They're going to make five times the amount of money in the first four years of being a, you know, a tradesman tradesmen are in such short. Their sudden such demand right now is absolutely Amazing.
