From Kevin Boughton’s article on the KGUN9 website:

A major labor shortage may be looming for the auto repair industry and that could mean a longer wait to get your car into the shop and a higher bill when work is finished.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports there will be more than 35,000 mechanic jobs available by 2024, as current mechanics and auto technicians retire but fewer enter the industry. According to a federal report published in 2012 nearly half of all mechanics are older than 45.

Faced with that reality the Tucson Metro Chamber of Commerce and Tucson Unified School District have launched a new program designed to get new graduates under the hood.

TUSD works with members of the Tucson Metro Chamber of Commerce who say they need qualified, young mechanics to replace an aging workforce.
