By Alex Fradera and Andrew BlassPublished Nov 18, 2017 12:19:33We’ve seen a lot of headlines lately that paint a bleak picture for health care workers, with reports that many will lose their jobs as the ACA is repealed.
But a recent study conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation suggests that the numbers could be a little misleading.
According to the study, the vast majority of health care employees are not at risk of losing their jobs.
In fact, the study found that only 2.4 percent of the workforce is likely to lose their job.
So what’s the real number of health workers losing their job?
Well, the Kaiser researchers suggest the number could be closer to 2.5 million, or roughly one out of every three workers.
That’s because the number of people who are losing their health care jobs is more likely to be a result of the Affordable Care Act than the effects of repeal.
The study also found that while the health care industry experienced a slight decline in 2017, that decline was offset by an increase in the number who were leaving their jobs, which is not necessarily a bad thing.
The number of healthcare workers that will lose a job in 2020 is estimated at about 17.4 million.
And of those workers, about 6.3 million are likely to stay on their current jobs and about 6 million will be fired, according to the Kaiser report.
What about the remaining 2.2 million people who may lose their positions?
While it’s difficult to say with certainty, the number is estimated to be about 2.3 percent of all workers.
The majority of those people are likely retirees or part-time workers who would like to keep their jobs but would like the option of working fewer hours to make ends meet.
The Kaiser report also found an increase from 2017 to 2020 in the numbers of people in part-timers who have been offered jobs, compared to the previous year.
The number of part- and full-time part-timer workers is expected to increase by roughly 5 percent to about 19 million.
That’s an increase of about 8 percent from 2017.
And, in 2021, the researchers estimate that half of all part-times will have been hired.
That means the number will be about 15.4 billion workers.
The report does note that health care and social assistance workers will continue to make up a significant portion of the workers in the health insurance sector, though that number is expected decrease by about 1.4 percentage points to 13.3 billion workers, which represents about 2 percent of full- and part- time workers.
And the number that are likely out of work in 2020?
The report estimates that about 1 in 5 workers in health care will be without a job by 2021.
That would be about 1 out of 10,000 people.
This article has been updated to reflect the fact that the number for the full-year 2020 report is about 7.7 million, not 2.9 million.
