The funny thing about health care is that everyone needs it - literally, we need it to stay alive. As we and the rest of the population grow older the need for health care increases and as such the job market will (regardless of what is going on in Great Britain because their system is totally different than ours), or at least should be at a constant increase. If I was a betting man, and this was Vegas, I would say health care is one of the only places where jobs will be safe in the future - unless you are living in the UK.
Heath Care Jobs are up, but will they stay that way?
MedZilla Report for January 2011 came out today and the news looks good. This past December there was about 36,000 health care jobs added according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The rate of lay offs has been slowly coming to a halt and the overall outlook is generally positive. One thing I did find interesting was the way the the company is using Health Care scare tactics by indicating our "new health care system" is becoming more socialized and thus all of these "gains" could be lost. I wonder who is behind all of that, cough, Republicans.
