Ever wonder how your locksmith business stacks up against other businesses in the state?

Or how about how locksmiths in your state compare to the nation?

Straight from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS, May 2018), here are some comprehensive charts to give you a better understanding of how much competition you have and how your salary compares.

(Sorry Wyoming, South Dakota, and Vermont, the BLS didn’t have any or enough data to include your states.)
