Half of all humans on planet earth one day suddenly disappear, leaving no trace. My question is, how would this affect the job market? First I assume there would be a lot of grieving over lost loved ones resulting in a need for therapists. Would the world stop investing in research, as it now needs to re-stabilize? Would jobs that require post-secondary education be less important?
"suddenly disappear, leaving no trace" - One second the "victim" would be there and the next they would have totally vanished. This would be randomly distributed over the plant. Because of the random distrabution some "unlucky/vary lucky" areas would be affected more then others.
What I'm looking for: Occupations that would become more desirable or no-longer needed.To focus the cope lets say we are specifically talking about the north American job market. A description of how the world/economy might look and why this would aid the specific job.
Construction workers may not be needed because half the houses would be left empty and people will no-longer be needing to build homes to accommodate the increasing population.
