Jobs that may disappear in Utah
There was a time when you would get in an elevator and there was someone there to help you get to the floor you wanted. Elevator attendants are long gone, along with milk delivery men, all because of technology that changed what was needed.
Even in your lifetime jobs have become obsolete. Think of the telephone operator that was there when you punched in 0, or the video store clerk. Not as much need for someone to rewind VCR tapes.
