Horticultural Technicians

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment for grounds maintenance workers is expected to grow as fast as the average through 2024, while employment for agricultural workers is expected to decline. High turnover in this industry continually provides openings. Many horticultural technicians work only part time, so employers are often looking to fill vacant positions. Because wages for beginning workers are low, employers have difficulty attracting enough workers. Opportunities will be best in areas with temperate climates.
