Employment of layout workers, along with most other machining workers, is expected to decline through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. The use of automation and technological developments in this field, such as numerically controlled machine tools, has increased productivity while decreasing the workforce. Most job openings will occur as a result of workers retiring or otherwise leaving the field. In recent years, employers have reported some difficulty attracting workers to machining occupations. If this trend continues, employment possibilities will exist for skilled candidates.
