Health care jobs on the rebound, but there’s a downside to that.
In the US, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that more than 3.4 million people lost their jobs in March, up from a little over 2.5 million in February.
Health care occupations were also up by 1.4 percent in March.
The job losses in March come as many health care firms are looking to lower costs by hiring more staff, as companies try to catch up to rising costs and compete for more business.
There’s a good reason for that.
While the US has one of the most expensive healthcare systems in the world, it’s also one of one of highest wages, with average salaries for full-time, salaried workers ranging from $72,000 in New York City to $89,000 at hospitals in Florida.
Healthcare costs have risen significantly in recent years.
The average US hospital bills rose $2,500 between January and March, according to data from the American Hospital Association (AHA), the largest trade group in the US.
In January, the average US family’s medical bills jumped an average of $3,300, an increase of 12 percent.
The healthcare industry has a reputation for being one of America’s most expensive employers.
But some experts are concerned that the healthcare sector is becoming a less expensive place to work because of the healthcare costs, and that those costs are only going to increase.
“We need to keep the prices of healthcare higher,” says Dr. David Zimbalist, an associate professor of health care policy at New York University.
“If we don’t keep them higher, there will be fewer people in these jobs, and I think it will be more difficult to retain those jobs.”
Health care workers, however, are being more vulnerable to these trends.
There is evidence that some workers in the health care industry are experiencing the lowest wages in years, as well as low wages, long hours, and working conditions.
For example, health care workers in Phoenix, Arizona, saw their wages fall an average 7 percent between 2014 and March.
In San Diego, California, a worker who worked for a private company in 2012 lost her job after the company cut costs.
The city has seen its workforce shrink by nearly 6 percent since 2012.
Some workers are also losing their health insurance benefits, which is a major cost for employers.
There are also concerns that employers are losing the confidence of their employees, as many people will not want to take on a job that requires them to work long hours.
“People will be fearful of their health, and they will be reluctant to take a job with a company that requires long hours,” says Zimball.
“There’s been a lot of anxiety in the healthcare industry.
They have to make sure they’re doing it right, and so people will be hesitant to take the risk of taking a job where they have to take long hours.”
Some workers have also started to quit.
A survey of more than 10,000 health care professionals by CareerBuilder found that only 8 percent of health professionals said they planned to quit their jobs within the next three years.
That’s less than the number who said they were quitting in February 2016, and less than half of the total workforce of health workers surveyed in February 2015.
The survey also found that employers surveyed had little interest in hiring more health care employees.
In fact, only about 8 percent said they would hire more health professionals over the next five years.
“The trend of employers dropping health care staff is an encouraging sign, but we also see that companies are losing confidence in their workforce,” says CareerBuilder CEO Jim O’Connor.
“These people are often the ones that are most likely to say, ‘I don’t want to do this anymore.'”
In addition to the lack of health benefits, health benefits have become less attractive.
The US has more than $1.4 trillion in health insurance that employers can deduct from workers’ paychecks, but fewer employers are willing to pay for it.
Many healthcare workers are struggling to make ends meet because they don’t have enough money to cover their healthcare costs.
Dr. Robert Nader, an economist at the Brookings Institution, notes that many healthcare workers, including nurse practitioners and home health aides, are often working in low-wage, low-benefit jobs.
“They’re going to take these jobs with little benefit and with very little compensation,” he says.
“It’s a situation where if you’re not making enough to survive, you’re just going to give up.”
The healthcare sector has seen a big drop in revenue over the past few years.
Last year, healthcare spending increased by 1 percent, according a study by McKinsey and Company.
This year, the healthcare spending is expected to fall by 0.6 percent.
That means the US healthcare industry is expected lose more than 6 million jobs between 2017 and 2020.
