Why auto repair shops are struggling to find workers
The automotive industry is in a difficult spot.
Auto repair shops across the country are struggling.
It’s not just the industry’s workforce, which is shrinking, but also the workers who are struggling with it.
It has a long history.
When the recession hit, auto workers were largely replaced by auto workers in the construction industry.
But the auto industry’s employment growth slowed significantly during the recession.
In the first quarter of 2018, auto repair jobs were down 2.3 percent.
This is a drop of more than 2.4 percent from a year earlier.
The auto industry has been losing manufacturing jobs at a steady clip, and the auto repair industry has seen a dip in workers.
But there are a few companies that are making money and are finding new ways to keep their businesses afloat.
They’re starting to hire.
In September, the auto parts company Autozone Inc. announced it was hiring 2,000 people to handle the growing needs of its auto repair business.
And the electronics company Cigna Corp. is hiring about 400 people to help with the growing demand for parts and other equipment.
The new hires are filling a void.
There are still some car repair jobs in the United States that remain unfilled.
Many of those jobs are in areas like the auto assembly plant that was once a place where auto workers used to work, but have now been converted to service businesses.
For these jobs, the people who work there are still paying for college and the costs of living.
Auto Repair Services Automotive repair shops that employ people who are either self-employed or are in full-time employment, including those in California and New York, make up about 8 percent of the auto trade.
But they account for almost half of the jobs that auto dealerships are closing.
The rest of the automotive industry has lost about 3.2 million jobs since the end of the recession, according to the Labor Department.
That’s an average of about 9,700 auto repair workers a day.
That includes jobs at the factory, service shops and the customer service department.
The automotive repair industry also relies heavily on foreign workers.
About 80 percent of auto repairs are done by foreign workers, according, to the National Association of Manufacturers.
The industry employs about 3 million people, and it’s projected to grow by nearly 8 million jobs by 2021.
That translates into about 5 million jobs lost from the auto market.
And if that trend continues, that could mean fewer auto repair employees in the U.S. The number of auto repair technicians and mechanics is expected to grow from 6 million to 7 million over the next decade.
But it’s a much smaller percentage of the overall automotive industry.
As the number of jobs in that field shrinks, the number and size of those workers has shrunk too.
The average number of workers at the auto service industry in 2018 was just over 300, and by 2020 it was only about 80, according the American Automotive Dealers Association.
And by 2022, that number will shrink to only about 65, the association said.
The numbers for other service-sector jobs are much more stable.
The U.K.’s biggest car and parts retailer, Ford Motor Co., is hiring more than 3,500 workers in 2018, and is expected in 2021 to double its workforce to more than 6,500.
In California, the state that has been the largest manufacturing base for the U, it’s about the same as in 2020.
The trend toward automation in auto repair is happening in every sector, and not just in auto manufacturing.
For the last five years, the automotive repair workforce has shrunk by about 5 percent annually, the Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association said.
In 2018, there were about 3,800 auto repair tradespeople in the industry, according a report by the National Automobile Dealers Assn.
The percentage of auto tradespeople who were self-employment or were part-time workers has been shrinking, too.
That has resulted in fewer employees.
In 2020, the total number of self-employed auto tradesperson jobs in California was about 10,000.
By 2022, the figure will drop to just 6,000, according data from the California Automobile Trade Association.
There have been a number of trends in auto parts that have affected the auto work force.
The most significant trend is the decline in the cost of parts, which has made it difficult for many auto parts suppliers to compete.
Auto parts are not cheap, so a lot of parts suppliers have had to cut prices, and this has made a lot more parts suppliers less competitive.
The decline in manufacturing has also had a significant impact on the auto workforce.
Manufacturing employment in the auto sector has declined for the last decade, and there is a growing number of people leaving the industry.
That was one of the biggest factors that led to the recession in the first place.
Now that the auto companies are doing a better job of hiring people, there is hope that the trend toward robots and automation will slow.
But in the meantime
