Some of you guys are missing the forest for the trees. Is manufacturing being automated? Yes. You know what isnt? Plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, etc. We actually have a shortage in many of these areas. Unfortunately our wonderful education system deems these jobs not the sexy ones kids should strive for. Instead of a kid going to tech school for two years so he can make 60k when he gets out they direct kids into a four year 50k education so they can get a job making 30k when they get out. I have a TechEd degree. All across the country TechEd programs are being cut out of schools. There are still plenty of skilled jobs in the future. The notion that we’ll all be sitting around jobless while the machines do everything isnt accurate.
