Study releases best and worst areas of jobs growth


Certain jobs in the U.S. seem to be quickly vanishing, or even becoming obsolete.

A list of the ten fastest disappearing jobs in America was just released by a web site called 24/7 Wall Street. It is based off statistics from the U.S. Bureau of Labor.

They are job categories that will shrink by at least 14 percent or more in the coming years.

Postal workers are predicted to lose more jobs than any other category.

In the remaining categories becoming obsolete, two of them are in the print business and three of them are in the textile repair or manufacturing industry.

The number one fastest disappearing job was postal work.

The U.S. is expected to add about 20 million new jobs over the next decade, which means some industries will actually be growing.

Some of the largest growing jobs were in the medical, science and mathematical fields.

The number one job for growth was actuaries, who analyze the financial costs of risk and uncertainty.
