I Looked Up The Fastest-Growing Jobs In America, And Boy Was It Depressing
Business Insider ^ | 04/07/2014 | Rob Wile

Posted on 04/07/2014 12:07:46 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

If you live in certain buildings in New York City, you get to know your doorman.

The weekend guy in my building, Gene, knew I was a business reporter, and on Saturday he asked me what his son should study when he starts City College next year.

(City College, by the way, remains the primary option — and a stellar one — for advanced higher ed in New York for the children of what remains of New York's working class.)

Anyway, off the top of my head, I was at a loss. I mostly cover energy, an area that obviously has seen tremendous growth in the past few years, but I doubted his son would be interested in moving to North Dakota or Texas to work on an oil rig.

So I told him I'd look up what the fastest-growing job opportunities were in the country.

Each year, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects which occupations it expects will see the greatest growth in the next few years.

The results you get depend on whether you're looking at absolute or percentage growth. But, as I discovered, both tell depressing stories.

First, on a rate basis, there's basically only one sector in the economy in which labor demand is growing at a steady clip: health and medical (21 out of 30 of the occupations listed in the table below are in this field).

If I were in college, I’d be getting ready for several years of grad school if the bank would give you money. This is downright depressing.

What is really sad is that the incomes for most of the jobs are less than what one can “earn” on welfare once all the welfare, food-stamp, subsidized housing, etc is factored in.

Being very closely tied to a top notch college I knew the answer easy.

Nursing or anything medical related really.
Accountants

People with these degrees get recruited HARD and nearly always have jobs waiting for them before they have even graduated.

good observation.

they are called “location dependent jobs” and they are the safest fields to go into.

Never plan to do anything that could potentially be done in some 3rd world hell hole for cheaper.

And taking care of old people and harvesting either their savings or recycling tax dollars from themselves (that should work well).

More of producing nothing of value.

I don’t see the retail sales bit.... I think brick and mortar stores will soon be changing dramatically. Were all consumers like me, it would almost all be sourced from the internet. As that grows I doubt home delivery can continue like it is now.

Instead of going to a four-year college, I went to a Technical School that had a 98% placement rate. When I was halfway through the course, I went to a school-sponsored job fair and was hired for a full-time job at $30,000 a year. This was back in 1985 when $30K was good money for a first job. I had to change to night school to finish my certificate.

Things really haven't changed much today. I am a hiring manager these days and I pull most of my new hires out of technical schools. I've hired some with college degrees but they tend to have high expectations for salary (have to pay off those loans) and don't expect to get their hands dirty because they have degrees, don't you know.

Nursing schools are the same. I think they have a placement rate in the high 90s for their graduates. Nothing to be ashamed about being a nurse. Even if you are a male. It's a good career that pays very well.

It seems to me there is a 'big picture' plan afoot, possibly directed by an extraterrestrial force to herd us all into groups, perhaps to be used as slaves or even as a food source for said aliens. Not joking.

This is Agenda 21. Everywhere you look Agenda 21 grows legs. No one can tell me there isn't some sort of extraterrestrial force directing all of this. What society builds a GIANT health care gestapo for peaceful purposes?

Both my daughter and daughter-in-law are hospital nurses, 25 and 29 years old. One advantage they also have is that they only work 3 days per week for full time (3 12-hour shifts plus overlap). With the right scheduling, they can get decent chunks of time off (several days in a row) without even using any earned time off.

Raise the import tariffs and put Americans back to work.

Demographics are going to continue to drive more people towards healthcare jobs. But we are not going to be able to afford healthcare jobs without some industry to produce wealth. We are dissaving to afford healthcare.

Healthcare doesn’t produce anything and is a drain on wealth. Healthcare can protect our most important wealth producing assets, people. But those people need jobs to produce wealth.

Anybody watching the pattern? Good-paying manufacturing and production jobs are evaporating - thanks to union wage inflation, overseas workshops, and robotics. So what will Americans of average or below-average intelligence (remember that for every person with an IQ above 100, there's another one below 100) do for a living in the future?

The answer appears to be "work as a servant doing unpleasant stuff for somebody else". Higher education is dandy if you have the smarts to do something with it and have an area of study that is actually needed today. We are evolving to a society where the less-blessed are either relegated to emptying bedpans or just receiving a government check to keep them from rioting. And the unspoken truth is that illegal immigrants can do all those menial jobs for much less already.

Since a larger percentage of our young people born today have also greater chances of being on the autism spectrum for no explicable reason, what exactly does our future appear to be? Is anybody doing anything about this?

"People with these degrees get recruited HARD and nearly always have jobs waiting for them before they have even graduated."

I've a friend who has a younger brother who went to college and became some sort of medical technician. He operates some kind of complicated machine.

He is always getting some further certification in running these machines and any new ones that come in to the market. The last Hospital/clinic that successfully recruited him not only give him a really good salary they give him a friking house. Deal is he has to stay working with them for x number of years and then he gets to keep the house forever even if he moves on to another job and it was only like 8 years or so. And it was a nice place in a good neighborhood even had a pool and hot tub with it.

..How to do a Colon Massage
July 23rd, 2007 by admin Leave a reply » .
All in all, colon detox is a boring experience. Certainly, one can conceive this. By now, you’re well prepared for colon cleansing. It’s an appealing fantasy. But colon cleaning is different in other parts of the world. Colon cleansers will cause some to quickly lose interest. I maintain the following about colon massage . I don’t know what colon detox is that specifically makes it like this.

Effective that tools are those that best address your needs. When achieved, your colon cleaning is excellent. I have been dealing with this since last week. Are you stickler to colonic massage standards? You’re seeing the results that you should. It is common how someone can comprehend a picnic of a topic like this. Now with this convenient and powerful colon cleansers, one can now truly experience extreme colon cleansing. Grab your favorite beverage and let’s begin with colon detoxification. You should start looking into the way to go about this kind of colonic massage today. There are some moments of clarity. All colon cleansers takes is a bit of effort. These days it’s all about massage therapy. Now is the time for reflection on the inspirational thoughts about colon detoxification. Colonic massage is all that it takes.

It all has the same root cause. I must say I was not disappointed in the least. It’s very clear that sooner or later colon massage will become more popular. There not many of us who think this. It’s like a quick fix for both colon massage and this thing. I am glad of this public opportunity to talk about colon cleansers.

Every part of the body holds in toxins and chemicals that it comes in contact with. These toxins could come from the food that you eat, such as pesticides from produce or preservatives that are found in ready-to-eat foods. The buildup of toxins can cause fatigue, sluggishness, poor digestion or even more serious ailments like cancer.

Any time you massage the body, whether it be a deep tissue, full body massage or one that is focused on a particular area like a colon massage, the benefits are the same. The chemicals that are hiding in these areas get pushed out and eventually filter through the body’s elaborate cleansing system.

Benefits a Colon Massage

The colon is part of that amazing cleaning system that we all have. When the colon becomes clogged with fecal matter, it’s unable to do its job they way it is intended to. This can lead to a number of problems such as skin problems, fatigue, moodiness, bloating, constipation, or even cancer.

Most of us have some fecal matter build up. If you happen to not have it now, you will. It’s said that everyone at some point will have a blocked colon. This is due to our lifestyle. First, there are a huge amount of people who are not eating what they should and second, to be very blunt, we are not efficiently “pushing” out our waste. This is because the toilet does not provide us with the correct position to “push” out our waste.

Colon massage is a way to help move that stuck matter down to where it needs to be. Plus, it can be done at home. I often give myself a colon massage after seeing it on the TV some years ago and find it helps a lot.

By removing the fecal build up, you will help to eliminate a number of health issues. Once your colon is functioning properly, it’ll be able to remove the waste and toxins in your body. This will help to clear up any acne and increase energy. The biggest benefit may be that it can help prevent cancer. Many health issues can be linked to an improperly functioning colon.

How to Massage

Choose a position, such as laying on a flat surface. You may want to use some sort of massage oil to lubricate the tummy. Once lubricated, place your fingers on the right side of the abdomen, where the appendix is located. Using a small, round circle motion, work your fingers up toward the rib cage. Once you reach the rib cage work your way down on the left side.

The massage should only last a few minutes. Be aware of any pain in the abnormal area. If you find you have tenderness in a particular area, you may want to see your doctor. You also need to make sure that you massage in a clock-wise position otherwise you’ll be pushing the fecal matter in the wrong direction

This massage will help with your bowel movement and to remove toxic build up. Remember that this massage can be done often. Also, increase the pressure being applied. You will first want to use gentle pressure being aware of pain or discomfort. Now that you know how to do a colon massage, you will be able to use this technique everyday to help regulate your bowel movements. Hopefully by doing this and also eating more dietry fibre, you’ll be able to avoid using any harsh laxatives.

That is a true statement in some areas of the nation. Yet with the ACA however, I see job opportunities increasing but pay being squeezed down as care shifts to outpatient and pallative centers along with provider reimbursement being cut. Ah, the new normal.

Wealth comes from the earth. Mining minerals, metals, energy, Agriculture, logging, fishing. Manufacturing and Transportation of goods. Do that and the wealth of the country allows people to make money off service industries. Democrats are doing everything to stop wealth creation for America. It’s part of Obama’s global wealth redistribution.

If you vote democrat you are a dumb ass.

I went to the doctor this morning for my annual check-up.
I noticed there weren’t as many receptionist clerks as there used to be 4 or 5, now 2. The place is a med clinic so they represent several doctors.

The receptionist for my doctor handed me a tablet, like an iPad and told me to fill out the forms, just follow the directions on screen. It was wireless and connected to the clinic’s main network, so all the info was automatically filed. I EVEN PAID FOR THE VISIT WITH THE TABLET, just swiped my CC thru the slot on the side....................

Last week we ate a Chili’s, a national yuppie SW-Tex-Mex restaurant chain. There was a tablet at the table. You ordered thru the tablet and paid your check as well........................

Anyone care to take a crack at what this means?

My wife came across a YouTube video of similar title recently. I dared her to click on it.

Turns out, it's just a lower abdominal massage. Up the right side from the hip to the diaphragm, across under the ribs, then down the left side. Useful for dislodging a gas pocket or something, I suppose.

The Waco practicioner must be hoping to make money off of those plugged-up vegans in Austin.

I really hate it when I see this...

It is nothing but tripe, that does nothing to address why the jobs left the US in the first place.

Tariffs do nothing but lower an already lowered standard of living.

It won’t matter before long. The medical racket is also government-linked in several ways. The overspending can’t go on forever. Even moderate spending is only truly supported by a large manufacturing base.

You might want to listen to this: http://www.wnyc.org/story/how-collaborative-economy-could-change-capitalism/

I think he’s right.

We have thirty years of jobs left, during which the remaining employed will complete infrastructure for the computer run automated manufacturing and service economy.

Then what? The author doesn’t know then what.

I figure just about everybody will be unemployed, and the government will give us all an equal number of ration cards to exchange for machine supplied goods and services.

The future—thanks to technology—looks horrible.
