Need A Job?

I’ve been working on an article that requires me to call different auto repair businesses and every shop owner I talked to has complained about there being a shortage of auto mechanics.  I can believe it.  Everywhere I go these days, I see new automotive businesses popping up and it’s amazing how many of them are involved with older cars or specialty cars.  It seems like young people looking to start a career have a golden opportunity here.  Another skill in high demand is automotive trim and upholstery work.  If you can do these types of jobs today, you can make good money doing work that’s enjoyable.

    John,
    I agree that careers which involve manual labor are frowned upon in our society today.
    However, I am a little confused by two of your statements. How can it be true that there is a shortage of mechanics while, at the same time, "Everywhere" you go, you see new auto repair businesses spinging up? If not mechanically inclined people, who are starting up these new businesses?
