True or False:(1) The popular idea of what an occupation is can be misleading, and (2) jobs in goods-producing industries are on the rise.
What a complex question, and one that has taken me a good-deal of research to answer.
Let me first start off by giving you the short answer to the first part of your question, which is yes. Now for the longer answer. The terms "occupation," like so many other terms, has a number of meaning. Webster's Dictionary defines "Occupation" as a "a job or profession," which is the perfect definition because it demonstrates the breadth of the term. The idea of an occupation encompasses a number of areas, from a summer job to a high-powered career. Anything that an individual does in order to make financial gains can be consider an occupation, not just what the connotation of the term "occupation" implies.
Now for the answer to the second part of your question. False. Unfortunately, as of the latest reports from the BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics), the goods-producing sector of the US is still falling. While the decrease in goods-producing jobs have begun to slow, it has not stopped shrinking.
