But... those jobs are still gone. In the long run, I do think that is a good thing. We are entering a post-employment economy and the sooner we realize that and adapt to it, the better.
In the future, high unemployment rates will be the mark of a successful and booming economy.

One method of escaping the drudgery of this existence is to re-learn how to enjoy the simpler things in life.
Not requiring the acquisition of useless junk one must take out a loan to acquire is a step in the right direction, but that does the opposite of fixing the economy....
The economy cannot be fixed, it must be changed somehow.
I don't know what it needs to be changed to as the thing that would work probably doesn't yet exist.
Something resembling the dreaded "Socialist Ideology" would probably work better than this does.
That must be why those who would no longer reap immense profits from something resembling Socialism influence everyone that it would be a bad thing.
Projects which benefit the people always operate at a loss to someone, maybe it's just "their" math...but I feel that having a less stressed out populace would be much better than having a stressed one which keeps causing the weaker minded of us to run out and buy a gun or other weapon and head out on a shooting spree, trying to vent the agony of this pitiful and evil world.
Evil doesn't just exist, it is made in a factory.
there will always be plenty of uneducated dregs

Your not going to lose it its just going to become less valuable as more people gain your skill set.
It's a game of inevitability as probable outcomes eventually become someone gaining your skill set.
Your not that unique trust me.
