Production Workers, All Other, and Temporary Jobs

The "go-to" employment category is production workers all other.  The is SOC group 51-9199 that contains 1,526 DOT codes.  The O*NET continues to list 1,590 DOT codes.  That list includes one duplicate which is why US Publishing cites 1,589 codes.  Labor moved 62 DOT codes to food production workers, all other, SOC 51-3099. Labor moved to other codes to other groups which leaves the group with 1,526 DOT codes.  For more details, see Understanding Production Workers All Other -- SOC 51-9199.

The employment projections list 263,500 jobs in production workers, all other.  The O*NET rounds that up to 264,000.  When we go to the employment projections and scroll down to the Administrative and Support and Waste Management and Remediation Services (NAICS sector 560000), we find that the employment projections lists 96,400 jobs.  The Temporary Help Services industry (NAICS 561320) employs 90,400 jobs.  The Census Bureau describes the industry:
561320 Temporary Help Services
This industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in supplying workers to clients' businesses for limited periods of time to supplement the working force of the client. The individuals provided are employees of the temporary help services establishment. However, these establishments do not provide direct supervision of their employees at the clients' work sites.Illustrative
  • Examples:
  • Help supply services
  • Model supply services
  • Labor (except farm) contractors (i.e., personnel suppliers)
  • Temporary employment or temporary staffing services
  • Manpower pools
Any estimate of the occupations within production workers, all other, group must remove 90,400 jobs if there are any restrictions on exertion or non-exertional activities. That wipes out over a third of the number of jobs in the occupational group.  The employment projections list 113,500 jobs in the manufacturing sector.  No manufacturing occupation that falls into production workers all other can ever represent more than a fraction of that number.
