U.S. Census Bureau Daily Feature for June 9

WASHINGTON, June 9, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:

U.S. Census Bureau

APPRECIATING AUTO MECHANICS

Profile AmericaTuesday, June 9th. It used to be that cars were fairly simple to repair, but they often broke down. Modern automobiles have become very reliable. They've also gotten extremely complicated — with antilock brakes, traction control, navigation systems, and even self-parking systems. That means there are more things to go wrong and more knowledge needed to repair problems. That's why June 8th through the 12th is National Automotive Service Professionals Week. The goal is to recognize mechanics across the country for their role in keeping America's millions of cars, trucks, and buses on the road. There are more than 157,000 automotive service facilities in the U.S., employing over 850,000 mechanics and other workers. Each year, they generate over $91 billion in business. You can find more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau online at www.census.gov.
