The slow but sure elimination of unskilled jobs seems inevitable, alongside continued technological advances of any given nation.
Fewer jobs in menial labor, more jobs in technology. Or is that not true, since technologies will always depend on the next wave of manufacturing, which will inherently be low-tech at the early & mid stages?
I guess the important question just becomes how we manage that new economy..
My grandmother bought a dozen properties around New Orleans during the great depression, mostly tax sales. My dad and his brothers managed to get rid of eleven of them. I'm stuck with one that NOBODY wants. In over 30 years, I've had one call and when they guy found out where it was, he backed out.
