For the first time, the United States has more people working in highly
skilled and low-skilled jobs than middle-skilled workers as the
technological revolution marginalizes secretaries, bookkeepers, factory
workers and clerks, a new study from TD Economics said Tuesday, April
After a decade of decline, the middle-skilled group of workers in the
United States officially fell to a minority 49% of the total workforce
in 2009, said Beata Caranci, deputy chief economist with TD and author
of the study, in an interview.
In 1999, TD data showed 55% of Americans
worked in so-called middle-skilled jobs.
Between 1999 and 2009, the proportion of high-skill workers rose to 31%
from 27%, while 20% of U.S. workers were in low-skill occupations, a
While the results were focused on the United States, the trend is
practically a universal one among developed economies, suggesting
Canada's workforce faces a similar shift.
"Technology does not have borders. We've seen the same kind of
downsizing in manufacturing here," she said. "If the premise is any
routine task can be replaced by technology, then Canadian jobs would be
subject to the same forces."
This is likely because many middle-skill workers, who are neither the
highest-paid nor the highesteducated, hold jobs that are heavily
This includes book-keeping, clerical work, or repetitive
production tasks, which have all suffered as computers and the rise of
the Internet have accelerated the speed of automation over the past
Highly skilled positions, on the other hand, often require high-level
reasoning or complex decision-making.
And low-skill positions tend to be
the domain of those with little formal education and focused on manual
labour. Examples include janitors and security personnel.
This leaves Ontario, home to a wide manufacturing base as well as
well-developed financial services and major technology hubs, in an
"Ontario is a bit unique. Whereas in the United States the Northeast has
carved out a hub and a firstmover advantage in biotech, and venture
capital markets on top of the South, which has a labour advantage of its
own in terms of the low cost of labour, Ontario is a mix of the two,"
she said. "So it might not be a story of the province, but rather of
regions, say Toronto versus Windsor."
In the United States, northeastern states such as New Jersey,
Massachusetts, New York and Connecticut have developed an advantage in
attracting highly skilled labour, while sunny southern states such as
Florida, dependent on the tourism industry, are dominated by low-skill
jobs while also nurturing burgeoning high-skill industries.>
Stuck playing catch-up are states and regions with large middle-skill
manufacturing bases, such as the Carolinas and sprawling manufacturing
centres in southwestern Ontario.
While some workers can be retrained, such as a bookkeeper learning to
use account software, not all middle-skilled workers will get the
"The question is what to do with those middle-skilled workers who lose
those jobs," Ms. Caranci said. "The idea is to push them up the skills
ladder, and that's a policy challenge."
However, there is a real risk that a portion of those workers are being
pushed down the ladder instead.
"We can't have everybody in the same job. You do need someone to clean
those buildings and dig those ditches. The unfortunate thing is
middle-skilled jobs are better-paying. And if it is those people who are
losing out on opportunities to move up, then that means less money
circulating in consumption and less money to pay off debt," Ms. Caranci
Interestingly though, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has identified
the top five fastest-growing low-skill professions in the United States
projected through 2018 as all health related, including home health
aides, physical therapist aides, as well as dental and medical
Considering the aging populations on both sides of the border, it is
likely Canada will also see strong growth in this sector, she said.
The two jobs for growth at the high end of the skills scale were
projected to be biomedical engineers and network and systems and data
