The number of people employed by this industry in the U.S. alone currently totals over 12.5 million people. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts this figure to rise to 14.4 million by 2016. The industry’s employment base, which includes significant numbers of women and minorities, is the largest of any industry in the private sector.
