Bye-bye, jobs, you're never coming back
Chrstopher S. Rugaber, AP, writes about jobs that aren’t coming back.
It’s not only jobs in the manufacturing area, either. Now, people looking six months or longer number 4.3%--the most since 1948.
Companies cut people, got more productive, now don’t need the people back.
Furniture stores—down 24% for good.
Steel and metals—down 23%.
Advertising and PR—down 16%. Wah—my area.
Interior and graphic designers—off 13%.
Auto and parts—Down almost 13%.
Eventually, companies won’t be able to squeeze more work out of people and will have to hire—but count on lower totals.
