Middle management jobs will decline further

by Grace

If you’re hoping your college degree will earn you a spot on the track to middle management, read what Harvard economist Larry Katz said.

“A lot of traditional middle-class, upper-middle-class jobs have been disappearing. If you look at general managers and middle-management jobs, those are ones that have been in decline and will decline further,” he said.

While the article suggests that these types of jobs do not require a college degree, a quick scan of job listings indicates otherwise.

Medical diagnostic work such as radiology is another job category that will experience decline in the U.S.

  1. The pundits have been saying that middle management will shrink ever since the recession of the early 80’s, but I don’t see it happening yet. However, mid-level skilled jobs, such as radiology, much of what lawyers do, accounting, software development, etc are very vulnerable to offshoring.


  2. Maybe we’ll still have as many middle-managers, but they just won’t be managing teams of postal workers or textile machine operators.
