According to JP Morgan Chase , some 42,000 “ middle skills” jobs in North Texas will remain unfilled this year and next. Those are trades like electrician or dental hygienist—things that require training after high school but not a four year degree. These jobs pay a median salary of $24 per hour. Getting certified doesn’t cost much or take much time, and the pay waiting on the other side can be hefty.
