Post Automation may hit higher skilled and technology jobs first
This was part of an interesting post I read elsewhere recently, explaining that, while we don't tend to talk about it or notice it for various reasons (that were discussed), automation has really taken away higher skilled, harder to train, higher paying jobs first, and particularly in technology. We tend to think of it taking the easy, low-skill jobs out first, but this is an interesting other view on it, and points out that the greater gains (for those at the top of the business) are in automating the higher paying jobs.

Now that I think of it, when the grocery stores around started cutting down in anticipation of greater costs from the Affordable Health Care Acts (and during a time that I knew several people working in grocery stores, particularly in meat sections), it was primarily the higher paid, skilled jobs that went first or were trimmed the most (the actual butchers, for instance, rather than the part-time meat section workers), as they would cost the most to keep around and for various other reasons.

Back again. I do stuff. Do you?
