spoco2 says... I just don't get the complaint that automation has put people out of jobs. You've taken shitty, menial, repetitive jobs and made them automated... like they should be. In an ideal world, the people who used to do shitty jobs like that should be better educated and skilled and be able to do more fulfilling jobs. Sure it doesn't always happen like that, but decrying the lack of mind numbing jobs that are better handled by automated procedures is really setting a fucking low bar on what you think quality of life should be. Complain about the lack of education that leaves droves of people with no skills to be able to do meaningful work.
