Weaver, C. Health care jobs grew as other sectors withered. Retrieved January 8, 2010 at
Moody, H. R. & Sasser, J. R. (2015). Aging: Concepts and controversies. Thousand Oaks, CA:
In 2015 Moody and Sasser reported: ?Ninety percent of older adults surveyed for the 2012 Pew Research
Center?s Religion and Public Life Project indicated that they are ?religiously affiliated?? (p. 32).
1. Based on a report for December 2009, the Bureau of Labor Statistics describes the unemployment
rate as ?unchanged? at 10%. Although the overall rate is steady, employment has fallen in at least
three sectors (i.e., construction, manufacturing, wholesale trade, etc.), but has grown in two others
fields (i.e., healthcare, temporary help services, etc.).
2. According to Christopher Weaver: ?? Resilient health businesses have added jobs throughout the
recession even as virtually every other sector of the economy shed them by the thousands. Since the
economy tanked in December 2007, the health sector added 631,000 jobs, including 22,000 last
month, according to the monthly report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Manufacturing companies,
by contrast, dropped 2.1 million workers during those two years.?
3. The aging of the American population has helped create the boost in the healthcare job sector.
According to Harry Holzer?a Georgetown University professor: ?When consumers have to choose
between buying a new car and getting needed medical treatments, they go to the doctor?s office.?
4. Because of the recession, there has been a lot of debate about whether to make cuts to Medicare?to
the alarm of many senior adults. Drawing upon thoughts from Heidi Shierholz, a labor economist at
the Economic Policy Institute, the article states: ?One interesting thing to draw from the jobs report:
While individual Americans are reluctant to make cuts in their health spending, no matter how rough a
recession gets, health care is often the first place Congress looks for savings. For instance, 1997's
Balanced Budget Act sought to take a bite out of the federal deficit by setting targets for Medicare
spending on doctors' visits. In the end, however, Congress overrode many of those budget cuts,
which have been fiercely opposed both by the doctor?s lobby and AARP, a lobby that includes many
For unemployed people, this report could help identify a growth field for their job pursuit (e.g., healthcare,
etc.). It could guide people away from less promising fields, such as construction, manufacturing, and
wholesale trade?pointing them instead toward healthcare.
Because this report is very general, it does not clarify which jobs are being created in the healthcare field,
or what they typically pay, or what the pre-requisites are for such jobs. In 2015 Moody and Sasser
reported: ?Ninety percent of older adults surveyed for the 2012 Pew Research Center?s Religion and
Public Life Project indicated that they are ?religiously affiliated?? (p. 32). If religion is as important to seniors
as the Pew study suggests and if healthcare is adding jobs as Weaver reports (2010), are any of the jobs
religious in nature? Within Erickson Living, there are multiple job titles that employ over 40 full-time
equivalents: Pastoral Ministries Managers, Pastoral Ministries Coordinators, Continuing Care Chaplains,
Hospice Chaplains, and Pastoral Associates.
