- The second table in this cluster clearly represents the higher-wage (correlating to higher skill) occupations. Aerospace engineers ($43.31/hour) and Electronics engineers ($40.40) stand out in particular, though both have seen a dip in job numbers.
- The precipitous drop in truck driving positions is startling — more than 133,000 drivers have lost their job since 2007. At more than 1.8 million, however, Truck drivers still make up the biggest chunk of the Transportation cluster.
- Most of growth in this sector comes from occupations that are composed of fairly few workers, namely Railroad conductors and Locomotive Engineers.
