This review will critique the article ‘Fastest Growing Occupations’ by Daniel E. Hecker in the journal Monthly Labor Review in the book Everyday Arguments by Katherine Mayberry (Mayberry, 2009). The brief analysis of the articles author, the point of view, and the evidence provided to prove a claim, is the evidence factual, and sources utilized. Finally the conclusion will be my viewpoint on the article and my personal opinion on why I like or dislike the article.
The point of view of Daniel E. Hecker is that education and training requirements of the workforce continue to increase (Mayberry, 2009). The need for additional training and higher education is becoming a requirement to get the higher paying positions. The actual opinion of the author is not announced in this article, but he includes many factual elements from the report where the data was retrieved. The evidence for the article is provided in much detail with percentages and occupational references. There is not enough evidence to prove that the claim is one hundred percent that education makes all the difference in what position you hold. There are in fact percentages on the actual positions that are noted in the article to prove that in these specific positions that additional training has been beneficial. The evidence provided was factual from the Bureau of Labor Statistics a department of the U.S. Department of Labor. Although, there is only one source being utilized the information that is provided was obtained from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The article could use additional sources to validate and compare additional data.
Overall the article was well written, clear and relevant. I personally believe that higher educa...

...al claims being made in this article to know if they are in deed factual. Although, there multiple organizations listed where one can go to seek confidential treatment and additional information on the subject, there are only two sources actually provided. The article could use additional sources to validate and compare additional data.
Overall the article was well written, clear and relevant. I like this subject for personal reasons, as I have fought my weight my whole life. I have sisters with eating disorders that have been medically addressed. Myself on the other hand, does not believe that there is a quick fix for any psychological or eating disorder, even if it is just your weight.
