5 of the worst jobs of the future

If you hold a position in one of these fields, or if you are thinking of getting into one, you might want to look elsewhere. The outlook isn't very bright.

This is recycled from a "listicle" MSN money put out a week or two ago about 10 jobs that will be phased out in the future (same pictures and everything).  It's a shame what passes for journalism these days.  Everything is some arbitrary list.  Soon MSN articles will be reduced to "LOL BTW OMG LMAO" as they hire  more and more intellectually lazy millennials.

rather than plastic operator, or whatever they're offering the grinder people, if you want to work with your hands, go into welding.  Several states are desperate for welders.

The outlook of MSN does not look to good either.

The first one is straight bull chit.

Florist will be REALLY busy over the next couple decades as all the baby boomers start dying off!

What?  You're gonna buy funeral flowers from walmart?

The lack of a job is the worst.Good day

This man is grinding without eye protection.  He would be issued a warning or even a day off without pay if caught in most companies.  Eyes are very valuable and to not wear eye protection is stupid!

Why are these bad jobs MSN?  Hey, their jobs.  Any job these days is a good job.

Add Life ins. agent to this list. You can now purchase online and get royally screwed by not having an agents assistance.

I hate to disagree with others who have commented, but I'd say that the job outlook for writers for MSN is pretty good as long as we all keep commenting on their stories-even if we are commenting on how bad they are!  It doesn't matter what we say-as long as we say SOMETHING and keep commenting.  More comments equals more pages equals more ads.

Computer programming!  It's either going to get harder as industry wants to do more with less or it's going to be automated and many people are going to loose their programming jobs as computers become more capable.  Either way, it don't look good for the future of programming.  I quit after twenty one years because my responsibilities and the difficulty were raising much faster than my pay.

These maybe the worst jobs in American, but, those who are having trouble finding jobs will be more than glad to take on these jobs. Whether they be good, bad or ugly, they have to eat and have a roof over their heads.

Yes, this article is recycled, maybe MSN is short handed because of the fourth of July weekend coming up. But the subject matter is real, neither bad or good -- it's just change. The buggy whip industry was hugh at one time. I'm 70 years old and own a printing company and riding it down.  I have been watching the traditional printing industry die a slow death for the past decade along with the logging companies and paper mills jobs.  Look at the Post Office, under all those stamps that are now gone was paper printing. made a lot of money, employed allot of people over the years and now it is the next generation to make a go of it.

The alternate career for Ticket Agent is Hotel Desk Clerk.  How helpful is that?  The pay is much worse.  This article is poorly written and is a repeat of another article I saw earlier not more than two weeks ago.

I had my tail removed so the BBC could pound my shyt box easier. After all, my kind is the plague of alkkkebulan....

There are no good jobs. I'm looking up at this article and see another one, '5 Reasons You Are Poor." MSN is the pinnacle of garbage journalism. Quality jobs left over a decade ago. Most people can't just flip a switch and get a new career. It's not like picking out peanut butter at the grocery store. You have bills, you have risks to balance and high educational costs the bar most from advancing quickly enough.

I'm still waiting for my horse buggy repair training to become an in demand skill again.
