Do you wonder if the industry you are working in or let us say hoping to work in will survive the artificial intelligence takeover? We have similar questions here.
With computer mechanization of jobs taking over many industries, it is no surprise that some industries may have less than pretty job outlooks. Many American industries also are being outsourced and from a cost perspective, it makes sense.
Why pay $8/hr for a job, when you could pay $2?
But that still leaves the question for many workers: what about me?
While industries such as healthcare, computer technology, and transportation services are projected to grow rapidly, what about mill workers and manufacturing jobs?
At Zippia, we took a look for you to find out which industries in America are projected to shrink the fastest. Here is a brief look at our top 10:
Federal Electric Utilities
Apparel, leather, and allied product manufacturing
Communications equipment manufacturing
Newspaper, periodical, book, and directory publishers
Manufacturing and reproducing magnetic and optical media
Cable and other subscription programming
Pulp, paper, and paperboard mills
Surprised by the results? We aren’t. If you haven’t looked at where most everything comes from recently, you will probably find that China and India are more likely sources than the U.S.
In addition to that, many of the industries on our top 10 list are related to products that are being phased out by newer technology. If you are going to read a book that is super long, why would you prefer a bulky paperback over an e-book version?
