Electricians Do More Than Just Keep the Lights On – They Power the World!
The services that electricians provide are critical to just about every industry out there. Most businesses wouldn’t function without the electrical power, communications, lighting, and control systems that electricians are skilled in installing and maintaining. Similar to industries like healthcare, it’s an industry that is not likely to ever go away. Not to mention that it has a growing demand for skilled professionals. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for electricians is growing much faster than average, the industry is expected to add over 62,000 jobs by 2029! Also according to the same source, the median wage before overtime and benefits is $56,180 per year – or $27.01 per hour.*
