Job LossWe looked at BLS data from 2006, just before the recession hit, and compared this with the most recently available estimates, those for 2010. Some occupations saw huge job losses during this period. Virginia lost about 20,000 jobs each for Cashiers and General Office Clerks and about 13,000 jobs each for Retail Sales Persons, Laborers, and Carpenters.

The primary motivation for the report was to give the CTE community an idea of the direction the 16 CTE Career Clusters will take over the next few years, and to provide school districts, states, and colleges with data to connect job projections to curriculum and program planning.
