Maine Workforce Outlook
We took a look at the State of Maine's Center for Workforce Research and Information website, which offers great insight into Maine's current occupations and industries. This website has tools for you to see what the outlook for employment will be in the years to come and which occupations are looking to expand in the future or, in this case, a decline in the years to come.
Reasoning why these occupations have a forecasted rapid job loss in the future
Most of the jobs on the list of the 25 fastest rates of job loss are positions that require a high school diploma or equivalent. The jobs on the list include secretary jobs and hands-on labor positions.
Some of the positions are dangerous and maybe on the decline because machines are capable of doing the work and have the ability to not expose workers to dangerous work hazards like inhaling bad chemicals or the danger of working with heavy equipment. Other jobs may have been useful twenty years ago but with the change of technology and work procedures may be eliminated due to advancements.
