Working as an Auto Mechanic in Indiana

In contrary to the high level of employment, Indiana is among one of the lowest levels of average wage for auto mechanics which is not all bad! This is the result from a collection of different things, the main one being the extremely low cost of living in Indiana. The state is in the top ten cheapest states to live in with their gasoline prices being about 40% lower than in Los Angeles. Therefore, even though you aren’t getting as hefty of a paycheck, your dollar will go much farther than in most other states. If you want to live in Indiana but commute to work in Illinois you will get the best of both worlds, low cost of living and a higher wage, especially if you go close to Chicago.
