Wind Turbine Technician Is The Fastest-Growing Job In America

 Jun 11 2018

Wind turbine technician is the fastest-growing job in America.

"You always take pride in what you want to do, right?" asked Derek Gruis, a wind turbine technician. "That's kind of the mentality of a blue-collar job. You come to work. You do the right thing. I definitely think it's a huge future here."

Across the U.S., more electricity is coming from wind turbines. And that means more wind turbine technicians are getting hired. For the past few years, no other job has grown faster.

And a lot of that job growth is in rural areas. The median salary for a wind technician is about $52,000 annually.
