Add to that the service sector has already been taking a hit for a numbers of years now in some sectors due to the cheap (quality) throwaway products, falling quality of replacement parts (multiple trips to the customer's home due to defective replacement parts at the servicer's expense) and parts availability issues. Also added to the troubles is the manufactures tightening the screws on warranty reimbursements to servicers, increased paper work often consuming as much time as the repairs and piss poor labor rates from the manufactures paid to the servicers for warranty work. (This is why some of the box stores will not touch a product as far as service if it is still under manufacture warranty.)
The result will be more small business closing (as if enough have not already) giving the large businesses/box stores that survive greater opportunity to say screw you due to lack of competition.
Who me? Bitter? No sirree. Ignore that picture of me next to the word disgruntled in the dictionary.
