    Oakland high schoolers repaired more than 3,000 Chromebooks this summer

    Patrick Sassine, service adviser at Vic Canever Chevrolet in Fenton, Mich., northwest of Detroit, looks at the store’s aging technician work force and worries. “Our work force is 50-plus” years old, he told Fixed Ops Journal. “They are at the end of their careers, and we don’t see anything coming in, no young talent.
