FRAGMENTED INDUSTRIES WITH HIGHER WAGES?
Question: What are fragmented and stable industries with skilled labor (wages >$15 per hour)?
Context: I am an MBA student ~1 year out from launching my search. My goal is to select a few industries now, so I can be deeply networked in them and completely fluent in their business models prior to launch. I'm looking for fragmented stable industries where I can buy and merge a few small businesses together. However, many industries that fit this description (e.g. home care, landscaping) pay very low wages (<$15/hour). I'd be happier working with more skilled employees and providing them good jobs. Any suggestions?
