Which states and cities has a high demand for auto technicians?

I am a C level technician.

I only care about income and job opportunities.

I could care less about recreation, fun, weather, food and a low crime rate.(Basically all the good stuff).

Thanks for the advice in advance.

The obvious choice would be cities with extremely low unemployment rates.

Bismarck, ND 2.2%
Fargo, ND 2.8%
Ames, IA 3.0%
Lincoln, NE 3.0%
Iowa City, IA 3.2%

If you'd desire larger cities:

Omaha, NE 3.8%
Des Moines, IA 4.5%
Madison, WI 4.6%
Oklahoma City, OK 4.6%
Salt Lake City, UT 4.6%
Honolulu, HI 5.0%

Unemployement rates directly affect which industries are doing well?

It would be interesting to live in Hawaii.

I would say cities with very little or inefficient public transportation networks. Places where everyone loves their cars and freedom.

I say California and Texas: SoCal, or any Tex metro. Texas in particular is very spread out, so the more driving, the more wear and tear on the car.
