You should click on this link to read her article in full, along with the job descriptions and average salary for those positions.
As with most, if not all of these kinds of articles; you will really need to take it with a huge grain – if not pillar of salt. First, it’s really her opinion and interpretation of current trends (however, insightful she might be).
What I’m saying is…
Don’t change change professions based on any of this.
But if you are already a part of these industries; then perhaps, you’ve finally got some tailwind behind you.
By the way, take a good look at the average salaries. The retail and customer service averages is about right. Nothing worth writing home about. Of course, it’s better than not having a job.
Money will always be in skilled, technical, or management positions.
And of course, commission sales or part commission sales.
Other areas pay well, obviously, but my experience is limited to retail and commission sales. With the exception of professional positions (doctors, lawyers, engineers, etc.), I think the best positions for significant levels of income are those that raise revenue.
The exception would be retail sales. But business to business sales or vendor sales to on or off premise retail can pay very well.
Really, when you get right down to it – exceptional performance will – eventually – earn you exceptional compensation.
