Insurance industry job losses from single payer not as large as you would expect

Plus Conyers' bill has a provision to help them transition. The overall numbers on how many workers lose or change jobs every year surprised me: 42 percent.
From the article: "Although it is hard to come up with a precise estimate, the likely number of jobs made redundant by the switch is a few hundred thousand over the course of a few years, in a country where 1.6 million people are dismissed from their jobs every single month."

1. There's still a problem though

People with highly specialized roles such "claims denier," "customer non-service rep" and "subscriber screwer" are unlikely to find employment in other fields.
