"but oddly enough, these people always keep their jobs."

Look again and compare with 50 years ago. 3/4 of the job descriptions in such places no longer exist. There are a few new ones, but overall, offices employ less than half the staff they used to sometimes less than 1/4

A lot of the positions you're thinking of are gone already, concentrated into a few more powerful hands, but even those are facing redundancy in the medium term.
