Projected Job Growth

Working as an Auto Mechanic in Kansas

One downside of being an auto mechanic in Kansas, the projected job growth is extremely low compared to the national average of 5%. Therefore, it could be very hard to get connected to a job if you are new to the state or if you are looking for a change later on in the future. Along with that, Kansas does offer an average salary that is on par with the national average which is good based on the low cost of living in the state. This can help assure that once you get a job, you will not have much to worry about except maintaining that job as your wage will be more than enough to sustain you in the state. If you need a change though, check out some other states that might interest you for your auto mechanic needs!
