How secure do you feel about your job? Do you think there’s even a small chance you might lose it in the near future due to high competitiveness in the workspace? Do you think there’s absolutely no way you could ever be replaced?
But what about those jobs which are in danger of flat-out disappearing? This has been an ongoing issue for many households since the industrial revolution when workers in factories lost their jobs by the thousands. We tend to think of those times as firmly rooted in the past, but the truth is people still struggle with the same issue today… Way more than you might think!
Though it is estimated that by 2026 the average job in America will expand it’s workforce by 7%, not all industries share the same trajectory. Between 2016 and 2026, 17% of the 818 occupations tracked by the Bureau of Labor Statistics will lose workers. For example, it’s expected that plastic and metal machine workers will drop by 9%. Even so… a lot of only 9% isn’t as bad as what other professions will go through.
