As the recovery stutters along, one sector remains forever rosy. Over the past year, health care has added an average of 27,000 jobs per month, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Health care jobs keep going up and up and up, from 8 million in 1990 to 14 million today, reports Business Insider.

On Jan. 1 of this year, the oldest members of the baby boomer generation hit their 65th birthday. From that start date, an average of 10,000 baby boomers a day are expected to retire until 2030, reports the Pew Research Center. By 2050, one in five Americans will be 65 or older.
