10 Industries That Will Lose The Most Jobs In Next Decade

First Posted: 03/18/10 06:12 AM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 03:55 PM ET

In a long-term assessment of employment data released last week, the Bureau of Labor Statistics surveyed the country's jobs landscape and developed a picture of how it's likely to evolve over the next ten years.

As the population ages and manufacturing jobs wane, much of the next decade's employment growth is expected to be in service industries -- such as health care services or business services -- which are projected to make up a whopping 96% of the increase in new employment.

But if some industries flourish in the new economy, others are likely to deteriorate -- and slash jobs. And in the report, the government pointed to ten struggling industries that it says are likely to hemorrhage the most jobs in the next decade.

Did your industry make the list? Check them out below:
