The Jobs That Are Lost Forever...

Usually, the New York Times (what am I going to do with they duck behind a pay wall?) does a great job pointing out gender trends in economic stories. This time they let us speculate about which jobs aren't coming back.

(update: reader Scott Steinbrecher reminds me the wsj was a bit more direct in its story.)

You don't need to be a Wharton whiz, however, to decode this one. These are jobs traditionally held by males, and they aren't coming back. The only mystery here is whether males will now get the message that females have understood for many years: College is the new high school. You need something more than a high school diploma.
