Education and health

Education and health care jobs are so attractive because unlike manufacturing jobs, which have steadily declined over the last 25 years, they are largely shielded from global competition.

As a society we continue to spend large sums of money, both in the public and private sector, on educating our students and caring for the health of our citizens.

Since good jobs will increasingly require more education and our population is aging, the long-term outlook for these sectors looks positive.

Education and health care also create jobs across income distribution, providing work for home health aides as well as college professors
