Where the Jobs Are . . . and Aren’t

24/7 Wall Street is one blog you should have bookmarked. I like the quality of their reporting, which gives a lot of information organized in a highly readable format. Right now, they have a depressing series on American’s Disappearing Jobs. Job losses are particularly heavy in areas like skilled trades. The fastest-growing jobs are largely in personal services. Of the top 10 employers in the country, six are retail or fast-food chains, with (you guessed it) Wal-Mart at the pinnacle.
