The Jane household is an Angie's List household. We don't hire anyone for a home repair project without checking their recommendations on Angie's List and frequently use that website to find craftsmen to hire. The company sends out a short magazine to subscribers. This month's issue had an article on a predicted shortage of electricians. The same or a similar article was published on their website a few months ago. ("Shortage of electricians may cause homeowners to wait for service," by Paul F. P. Pogue). Home repair is something that can't be outsourced -- you can't mail your electrical system overseas to be fixed.
