Appliance Service Technicians

Employment for appliance service repairers is expected to grow more slowly than the average for all careers through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Although Americans will certainly continue buying and using more appliances, today's machines are often made with electronic components that require fewer repairs than their nonelectronic counterparts. Thus, the dependability of the technology built into these new appliances will restrain growth in the repair field. On the other hand, as the price of high-end appliances continues to increase, many Americans will choose to repair their devices rather than pay to replace them.
