Wow I call BS on this thread.
All the jobs have not gone. Especially not to automation. The Ops pictures above are Silly. They show a handful of auto workers on the factory floor
then show robots doing those jobs claiming that robots stole the jobs. Silly people. It took many more people to make those robots - thus many more
jobs. Hardware, software, technicians/troubleshooters etc.
The false perception is that jobs are scarce due to the amount of people applying for unemployment. This is not true indicator of how many jobs are
out there. There are TONS of Jobs in America !!!!
Most of those saps on unemployment can go out Today and get a job. ( and today is Sunday) The problem is no one wants to WORK. They all want
specialist jobs they had been trained for but those jobs change with the technological climate and are never guaranteed to be there forever. People
should know this when getting into certain fields.
I know construction, plumbing, air conditioning, heating - and heck lawn cutting, landscaping, digging ditches and a ton more skills (many of which
are easily learned for little money ) and I can fall back on them anytime of year to make ends meet. Anyone else can too. here's a Tip. Home Depo
teaches you skills for FREE.
Hey America, Get off your fat lazy butts and go out and get to work!
Who do I blame the high rate of unemployment on? I blame the stupid people who are using up the resources in the system by applying for unemployment.
Silly people. the People, not the Jobs are the problem.
Unemployment is only supposed to be used by those with extreme circumstances where they cannot possible get work at all. This would be a very small
percent of people on unemployment now. If everyone would stop using up the government resources and get off their butts and work our economy would be
way better off, but no.. people don't want to learn multiple skills or do any real work for a living. People want to be college trained flunkies who
stick with a certain job the rest of their life with promises of 401 K's and a fat retirement plan. If they cant get that or get fired from that they
cry to the government and say, You have to help us because we cant work in our chosen job anymore. Boo hoo cry me a river. No wonder the economy is in
the trash, the American people don't want to work.
I haven't worked for anyone in over ten years and yet I still go out and work to pay my bills. Would I collect unemployment? ( I could be approved)
Nope, no sponging off the government for me when I an able bodied and can do for myself.
You give me ANY able bodied person and I can get them work and a skill ASAP. Any takers?
