Just saw this at a plumbing website.

Want to know where there might be job openings or business opportunities?

Here's an interesting web site that lists the number of plumbers relative to the local population. The lower the number, the fewer plumbers in the community.

For example, in Utica, NY, the median salary is $45,000 and the ratio is 0.3. This indicates that there may be a need for more plumbers in this rural part of New York state.

Here's a similar listing for Electricians.

We wish good luck and success to all the graduates and to all of us who are learning what we need to be successful every day.
