Workers have a better chance of landing a drone on their doorstep than at a big office, according to a new survey by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
But it’s the same with delivery drivers.
They’re not nearly as valuable as people at a bigger firm, according the survey.
And the same is true for other job titles.
“Our survey finds that workers are less likely to see the value in a big job title compared to a small one, but the number of jobs in big firms remains stable and consistent,” said John Bostock, chief economist at BLS.
“The only exception is for some jobs where we see a big difference between the two.”
The survey, conducted last week, looked at the types of jobs that have become increasingly common since the start of the recession.
BLS found that jobs in retail, service, administrative, information technology and manufacturing have all grown in popularity.
But the biggest job gains in the last year were in those sectors, which account for a third of all jobs.
While the survey found that the number and value of jobs has increased, it also found that there’s a long way to go.
It found that less than 1% of jobs were created in 2011.
By 2013, that had fallen to 0.5%.
“In fact, the number jobs was lower in 2011 and lower in 2013 than it was in 2011, but that didn’t translate into increased job creation,” Bostocks said.
“Instead, the job growth over the last decade was the result of the large number of new jobs created.”
A majority of jobs are still filled by the same types of workers.
The study found that about a third, or around 3.6 million, of the jobs that had been created in the manufacturing sector in 2011 were filled in 2012.
That percentage has fallen to about 1.3 million jobs, which is about 1% higher than in 2011 but still below the levels of jobs created during the financial crisis.
It also found a large decline in the number people who were self-employed.
The survey found about 13% of all workers were self employed in 2011 — that’s down to 10.6% today.
The number is about the same today as it was at the start the recession, but it’s down by almost 2.7 percentage points from a year ago.
Bostocks says there’s also been an increase in the amount of work that’s done by contractors, who typically do the bulk of construction work, as well as contractors working in the hospitality and retail industries.
But he cautions that it’s not a panacea for the U-S-A economy, and that the overall economy is still struggling.
“The economic outlook is still uncertain.
There’s still uncertainty about what the long-term outlook will be,” he said.”
But the trend is clear: jobs are disappearing and the economy is suffering from a lack of workers.”
