This only effects the rich bastards that own property on the beach, so sucks to be them.
No. Seawater incursion does not just affect beaches.
Half a metre of sea level rise, which Wanless says will probably happen by mid-century, will mean Miami will lose its freshwater resources.
Once the sea level reaches a metre higher, all of South Florida’s infrastructure – roads, sewers, water treatment facilities, electricity, hospitals, schools – “will have to be totally redone.”
BTW this is an outcrop of the way another member thought about the Amazon Warehouse thing.
Wealthy Americans who are retired or do not a thing other than enjoy their wealth are included in that unemployed %. Unemployment numbers account for all of whoever are not employed no matter how much they got in the bank.

What are the basic concepts of employment and unemployment?
The basic concepts involved in identifying the employed and unemployed are quite simple:
People with jobs are employed.
People who are jobless, looking for a job, and available for work are unemployed.
The labor force is made up of the employed and the unemployed.
People who are neither employed nor unemployed are not in the labor force.
... People are classified as unemployed if they do not have a job, have actively looked for work in the prior 4 weeks, and are currently available for work.
