Posted on 11/23/2020 8:18:02 AM PST by SeekAndFind
The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the U.S. labor market, and according to new data from job and review site Glassdoor, the damage done within some industries might be irreversible. Glassdoor Chief Economist Andrew Chamberlain breaks down pandemic-affected jobs into three categories: jobs that won’t return until the coronavirus is under control, jobs that may take years to get back to pre-pandemic levels, and jobs that may never return.
Jobs that likely will not return until COVID-19 is under control include anything in the personal services, including beauty consultants and stylists as well as discretionary health care jobs like audiologists, who help with hearing aids, optometrists, and physical therapists. Event coordinators are also a part of this category. Chamberlain says that these jobs might eventually return in 2021 as long as a vaccine is available.
Jobs that might take years to come back come to full employment include those in the foodservice and education industries. “The restaurant industry is in kind of a crisis right now. The restaurants will be back after COVID; it’s just going to take years to get back to where we were in February,” he said.
Chamberlain says that positions in U.S. colleges will likely fall by the wayside and take years to return due to dwindling college enrollment numbers.
“There is a financial tsunami coming for higher education, but also local public education … Universities are just so big and expensive and have so much real estate and huge overhead that there’s a financial crisis that’s coming for them,” he said.
“It’s probably going to take two or three years to unfold completely. So I’m really worried about that. ”

October 2020 Open Jobs
Percent Decline During COVID-19
I would think waiters and bartenders are not doing well.
I have a good friend who is an Audiologist. His business has not gone away.
He was locked out for a couple of months. But, has been open since May and is doing quite well.
I sell guns.
Business is booming.
I see what you did there.
I didn’t see sex worker on the list.
A restaurant near me closed and started a food truck.
Business is booming and owner works with one employee instead of 6 and he is making more than when he had the restaurant.
He post his locations on his fb page everyday.
Most of those jobs listed will be back in 2021 after the Trump vaccine is distributed.
“and jobs that may never return.”
more MAGA style Presidents.
If America does not wake up to this manufactured and manipulated Covid Crapola, we are indeed in for a long, dark winter.
Demon-rats will use it for cover to do whatever they want.
My job is secure.
I’m a Blade Runner.
I “retire” replicants.
Professor is on the list. Silver linings.
No job is at risk from Coronavirus, they are at risk from. Politicians playing doctor on TV.
The virus does not carry a tape measure, is not particularly lethal and passes through filter masks like water through a chain link fence. It also is capable of traveling 30 yards by air and remain viable on surfaces for over a week.
Any and all of the “Covid Restrictions” have absolutely zero effect.
To top it off the PCR Covid test is completely random at 40 cycles as it is being done as medical literature clearly shows, and is only 3% accurate at 35 cycles.
Prior to the Covis political no PCR test was run at greater than 25 cycles as the results were considered useless.
This is 100% political theater for a Globalist government takeover. A Hoax, nothing more.
And top medical experts say the same.
Musicans and other entertainers are getting destroyed. And they’re not all pod-eating snowflakes.
Now get rid of all the service jobs here because of a fake pandemic.
Yes, the Elites DO want you to be poor.
As the cost of everything goes up due to lack of supply, taxes are raised to cover costs for Uncle Sugar and the local sugar cubes, and the HR costs of actual working people goes up to that $15 an hour level for kids that wrap Christmas packages, there is no job that is going to be safe. An economy is not about certain jobs that disappear, it’s about jobs being erased from the top down. And in many cases, the lower jobs that actually produce the worth to be used, are protected until the whole thing goes tango uniform. A business doesn’t earn money with a CEO and board sitting in the glass tower. It is earned with the income of low level that create investments. So when the market finally dumps, all jobs are going to go away. And they are starting at what was a 3.5% unemployment in February and now at 6.9% in October. Sometimes the grass isn’t greener on the other side of the hill.
Well if the Beauty Consultants aren’t working, then there is no need to go to the Optician.
Hey Reggie, the covid effect will be minuscule next to the BidenHarris effect.
We will look back on 2020 with fond remembrance.
A few books out there suggesting that 50% of the jobs done are “Bulls——t jobs” that could be eliminated with no loss to the economy or our society. Just a loss to the person needing the income from the bulls——t job.
I’m in financial services. About 70% of the jobs in this business are bulls-—t ones. The industry itself could be termed that, really. Just a bullls——t industry.
I think about that a lot. I don’t really see where we end up.
There are a lot of people out there — smart people, people with college degrees, even graduate degrees. Hardworking, dedicated people. Really, good, responsible people.
And a lot of those people are actually in BS jobs, not needed by society, not really contributing anything. That’s not an insult in anyway. It’s a comment about how we have structured our national economy.
The BS jobs give a lot of good people a decent pay check. If you wave a magic wand and make that disappear, you cause a lot of damage.
But it’s a bit of a joke that some of the best paid people are working totally BS jobs that just don’t matter at all. In the end, I just don’t see where this is taking us.
Are you still using the Voight Kampff test?
