Toy Industry Workers
According to the Toy Industry Association, industry sales of traditional toys totaled $21.4 billion in 2008, which was a 3 percent decrease from the previous year. Although there is always a demand for toys, this industry is definitely affected by downward trends in the economy. Employment outlooks, however, depend on factors such as the type of job done, the amount of automation introduced into the workplace, and the amount of production that is moved overseas.
