(STACKER) – There is currently a shortage of skilled workers in the United States.
Across the country, there are not enough skilled electricians, plumbers, HVAC technicians, and carpenters to meet the demand. A recent study found that many of the most sought-after jobs remain vacant for at least a month.
This is because millions of Americans laid off in the early days of the coronavirus are looking for work.

However, not all job boards are created equal. While all 50 states should be fairly easy to find, the pay for that work varies by state. To find the states where homeworkers are paid the most, ServiceTitan analyzed Payscale’s June 2020 data. The average homeworker salary was calculated by taking the average of the salary of entry-level, middle-level, and senior workers in each state. HVAC technicians, plumbers, and electricians were all included in the record, which can be viewed nationwide here.
