We both know there isnt enough room for the bottom half of the economy in the top half.
These jobs are essential to society as a whole they are worth more then what they are getting paid period.
Stop blaming poor people because they dont make enough money that is a joke.
Its as simple as this. The greedy family at the top of this company care more about their accounts then they care about anything else.
Given that only about 2% of workers earn minimum wage or less your entire premise makes no sense.
How would you like to live in an economy where robots do everything that can be predictably programmed in advance, and almost all profits go to the robots’ owners? Meanwhile, human beings do the work that’s unpredictable – odd jobs, on-call projects, fetching and fixing, driving and delivering, tiny tasks needed at any and all hours – and patch together barely enough to live on.
Brace yourself. This is the economy we’re now barreling toward. They’re Uber drivers, Instacart shoppers, and Airbnb hosts. They include Taskrabbit jobbers, Upcounsel’s on-demand attorneys, and Healthtap’s on-line doctors.
Its a joke man the old idea of an economy is dead we need to transition into a place where people are gaurenteed a basic living because this whole economy is a total shame anyway.
You think capitalism is what built the pyramids and the other monuments around the world? Hell no it didnt.

They're so essential, that they will be automated within 15 years, and there's always people applying... supply and demand, buddy.

With the corporations owning the government, I see it unlikely help will come from there.
Those that are working have their debts and need their incomes to live, so I see little chance of their support for a real change.
The poor are being demonized by the press and beat down by LEO's when they protest.
Sadly I really do not see a future for a large part of our population.
