Why American men may have less luck finding a job than women
Article here. When I think of how automation/AI is going to eliminate millions of jobs over the next 30 years, I think of this story being like two groups of hungry people on the Titanic arguing/competing in the dining room over who will get the best seats. Meanwhile, the ship is heading ever closer to the iceberg. Also, notice the careers that are going to do well: healthcare (an aging population) and computer-related (people programming the computers that replace people at jobs). Kind of a gloomy picture getting painted here. Excerpt:
'If you’re searching for a job, the odds of finding one may depend on your gender.
Overall, occupations that are more than 80% female are projected to grow at nearly twice the rate of jobs that are at least 60% male between 2014 and 2024, according to research out this week from the jobs site Indeed and its chief economist, Jed Kolko. The site researched Bureau of Labor Statistics and found that many are jobs that are traditionally dominated by women — including occupational therapy assistants, physical therapy assistants and nurse practitioners — are growing at the fastest rate. They will grow at about a 40% rate, compared to an overall rate of 6.5% for all jobs.
In fact, all of the fastest-growing jobs for women were healthcare-related.
