today’s googled “tech news” at random. Food for thoughts today by this nerd: “There is a rule of thumb that you can apply to what has happened to the labour market in the developed world over the past 30 years or so. It is that the growth in jobs has been at the top and bottom end of the skill range, with jobs in the middle being hollowed out. So there are more jobs for surgeons and lawyers, and more for delivery drivers and bar staff. To say that is not to disparage lower-skilled work. Quite the reverse. One of the troubles of our society is that we don’t have enough respect for lower-skilled but essential jobs, and don’t do enough to make “bad” jobs better. But there is growth. By contrast, and to over-simplify, blue collar production line jobs have been replaced by robots and white collar clerical ones by computers.” (quoted from online source on job-competition)
