New push for recruits during auto mechanic shortage

For those looking for a career, the road to the future may be on the road itself. No four-year-degree is required, and jobs are in high demand.

The Pittsburgh Automobile Dealers Association covers an 11-county area and currently has a shortage of almost 500 workers.

“The dealers in our region sold 150,000 new cars last year. Every one of those cars have multiple computers in them and an enormous amount of electronics. Those have to be serviced immediately and repaired,” Amati said.

The typical career path has students attending full- or part-time work training during their junior and senior years of high school, followed by a post-secondary education program for up to two years.

The average cost for the education is $10,000, but with the high demand for good mechanics, it is oftentimes free.

Trucking company shuts down, had ties to closed auto plant

Youngstown-based Falcon Transport Co. told its 550 workers over the weekend that it was immediately shutting down all operations.
