Dead trees are a bad business to be in now. Lumberjack, newspaper reporter, printing worker and mail carrier are among the top most endangered jobs for 2014, a new CareerCast report says. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, some of these jobs are expected to see double-digit hiring declines from 2012-2022. The jobs with the highest expected fall-offs are: Mail carrier: -28%. Farmer: -19%. Meter Reader: -19%. Newspaper Reporter: -13%. Travel Agent: -12%. Lumberjack: -9%. Flight Attendant: -7%. Drill-Press Operator: -6%. Printing Worker: -5%. Tax Examiner and Collector: -4%. The common predator threatening nearly all of these jobs is technology, which has increased automation while allowing more to be done with fewer resources, especially human.
