USPS Jobs among list of occupations with bleak future
Posted On: Jan 13, 2014

Elder care and other low-wage jobs will be among the fastest growing career fields over the next decade. Postal carriers and journalists might have a harder time finding work.

The most job openings, due to both growth in the sector and employee turnover, will come for workers in retail sales and food and beverage service. Average income in those fields is less than $20,000 per year.Postal and media sectors are likely to shed jobs in the next decade.

Employment among U.S. Postal Service workers is expected to decline 28%. Reporter and correspondent jobs will contract nearly 14%.

Job Outlook
Overall employment of Postal Service workers is projected to decline 28 percent from 2012 to 2022. Automated sorting systems, cluster mailboxes, and tight budgets will adversely affect employment. Although the need to replace workers who retire will result in some job openings, very strong competition can be expected as the number of applicants typically exceeds the number of available positions.
