Where Are The Jobs? Are Humans The Horses Of The 21st Century?

Being put out to pasture takes on a new, more imminent meaning:

“The documentary Humans Need Not Apply is fascinating. It states “as mechanical muscles pushed horses out of the economy, mechanical minds will do the same to humans. Not immediately, not everywhere, but in large enough numbers and soon enough that it’s going to be a huge problem if we are not prepared. And we are not prepared”. So the questions stands, “Are humans the horses of the 21st Century?” We have heard from many politicians about how outsourcing and/or immigration are affecting job creation within the US and Europe and both issues were a key part of the Brexit and Trump campaigns. At some point the reality needs to hit; neither immigration nor outsourcing are the issue. The real issue is technology and the decline of jobs.”
