Through 1st QTR 2014, Truck Driving and Registered Nursing - including Nurse Practitioners - became the Top High Demand Jobs in the USA.By the beginning of 4th QTR 2014, Truck Driving was still Number One. The same was true by April 2015 and even April 2016..
Aerospace and Medical Manufacturing began to expand in 2013 and jumped several notches throughout 2014, despite some problems with launch rockets and 40-year-old Russian engines used in some American space industries.
New engines emerged from innovative American manufacturing in companies such as SpaceX and Planetary Resources, among other companies in the NASA Commercial Crew.
Plenty of respected American manufacturers of aerospace units came forward. Medical Manufacturing continued to surge upwards.

American Job Growth Continues Beyond 2011
Employment Projections in USA and UK
Setting aside some higher-paid corporate CEOs and self-employed entrepreneurs, Physicians, Specialists, and Surgeons, all representing the Healthcare Industry will likely continue to receive the highest salaries in America through 2020. However, this is probably true only if the new national healthcare reform laws of 2010 - 2011 do not change pay scales and Usual and Customary insurance reimbursement structures in a way that reduces income for these professionals.
A portion of medical practitioners mentioned above left the practice of general medicine and specialities in the 2000s, because of increasing malpractice insurance costs. Other physicians have begun to reject new patients that 1) are self-pay [have no insurance] or 2) receive Medicare coverage. If insurance reimbursements decline in the amounts usually awarded, then we may see additional physicians leaving the practice of medicine and medical specialities.
National employment projections for America were completed for the 2008 - 2018 decade and published in the fall of 2010 to replace projections for the 2006 - 2016 decade. While national projections for 2010 - 2020 will be released likely in 2012, some states and metro areas have already established such projections. Many of these include a high proportion of healthcare professionals.
The United Kingdom already has a set of employment projections for 2020 in London. the document is called Destinations 2020 and predicts that the UK will follow London in its economic and job growth to 2020.
We will have a look at salaries of the highest paying jobs in both USA and UK among these projections mentioned above.
