Today there was an article on the web on how manufacturing will probably not come back to the US and for that I have to say – nonsense. Companies can compete and manufacture here, they just have to have domestic markets to sell the goods to locally. We can’t do much until we get back to full employment and from the looks of things that may be several years away. In the meantime, if you are looking for “must have” services that will be needed you may want to check these services out as possible careers. Bear in mind that the economy has hit them too so expect cuts in these professions as well.
Medical Field – I think too many people are jumping into this already. I see so many people going into nursing and I predict a glut of nurses in five to ten years. People will keep getting sick and they will need places to get better. They will also need people to care for them.
Security – People will need police or security to keep them and their neighborhoods safe. Already gated communities have their own security forces though they stop short at carrying automatic weapons. Generally speaking, guards don’t make a lot of money.
Fire protection services – working in Fire Departments or anything to protect yourself from fires or deal with them looks to be a continuously growing business. It may be my imagination but I think with recent dry seasons in California and other places nationwide there is a need for firemen (budgets permitting) and fire prevention services.
Sanitation – People will be needing to have their garbage taken from them. Literally. Unless you are living in a farm and heavy into composting, worm farming and using things that can easily be broken down, you need somebody to haul your mess away from you. The garbage business may be a dirty gig but it will continue to be around for a very long time.
Thanks for making my Curio & Relics book number #26 in the Firearms section, gang. Keep telling people about the book.
Be safe, healthy, wealthy and wise.
