Things to find out

Find out which were the occupations that lost the most jobs in the recent recession.  Rank from highest to lowest.  Teachers don’t lose their jobs in a recession.  Education is funny that way.  It’s a pure cash business.  Do for other recessions.  See if there has been a change over time.  Elucidate the distinction between productive and unproductive labour.

Which occupational sectors are recession proof?

    Thanks for raising this interesting question. The realization that people at lower levels of educational attainment, probably previously working in the construction industry are the most affected by the recession in the United States, could be useful.
