The Obamacare Workforce

"Increasingly, the American economy is being defined by its healthcare sector," according to a new report, Healthcare, by Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce.

With or without Obamacare, notes the report, there will be 5.6 million more health care jobs in 2020 than today. Health care employment is projected to grow twice as fast as the national economy during this decade. The report looks at the demographics of the health care workforce and examines job growth by health care field, occupation, and wage.
