Several categories of postal jobs lead the list of occupations with the worst future outlook, according to a Labor Department report, continuing the trend of middle class jobs being replaced by poverty-level positions like “personal-care aides”:
Elder care and other low-wage jobs will be among the fastest growing career fields over the next decade. Postal carriers and journalists might have a harder time finding work.
Personal-care aide will be the fastest growing job from 2012 to 2022, among categories with more than 25,000 positions, the Labor Department said in a new report. The field will grow by nearly 50% to 1.8 million jobs. Workers in the field earned an average annual income of $19,910.
