From NewsOn6.com:

A nationwide shortage of skilled laborers is causing problems in Tulsa.

Trained mechanics are hard to come by, putting car dealerships and auto shops in a pinch.

One local dealership is hoping to encourage high school students to consider a career as a service technician.

“There’s always going to be a job for an automotive technician,” student Skotty Camp said.

The 17 year old has always been fascinated by the things that make cars run.

“I actually work on my motorcycle and my mother’s car all the time, so it’s kind of like a hobby to me, more than a job,” Camp said.

He’s one of a handful of high school students chosen to take part in Universal Technical Institutes’ recruitment program.
