Work is not for everyone

Most people don’t waste any more time on traffic on their way to and from work. There’s no point in spending the whole day in the office. Besides, not many people have an actual office anymore — or a full-time job.

The job market has significantly changed, and many jobs have disappeared. Robot cleaners are sweeping streets, working 24/7. Car-sharing and self-driving cars have replaced taxi and truck drivers, and there are no police officers monitoring roads. Robots always follow rules, and there are cameras at every corner anyway. Shops don’t need as many cashiers, and the same goes for schools and teachers. Restaurants make do perfectly without live waiters.

People who no longer have a job have a choice. They can receive basic income that provides for a very humble lifestyle. Or they can learn to do something new that hasn’t been automated yet. But competition for the remaining jobs is high: Well-qualified work requires constant learning , and not everyone can do it. Demonstrations and protests of people who have nothing to do have become an everyday occurrence.

Charissa Thanapreechasakul I think it's a really cool idea because in addition to reducing accidents, it might also make the city a technologically advanced city. 我认为这是一个非常酷的想法,因为除了减少事故之外,它还可能使这座城市成为一个技术先进的城市。Я думаю, что это действительно крутая идея, потому что помимо снижения аварийности, она также может сделать город технологически продвинутым.

Max Isaev Robot cleaners are taken out by hordes of unemployed. Some of them reach second-hand market, but mostly they're salvaged for details and energy batteries. Same fate befell driveless cars, moreover - automatized warehouses were quickly plundered, self-made EMI and communication jammers take out the drones that were supposed to protect corporate property. Small private military groups couldn't defend entire cities, their work is complicated by ex-police officers whose jobs were also cut. After several years of humanless education centers it became apparent that too many people just cannot learn complex patterns to support ever growing computer-based infrastructure. One by one, each sphere crumbles under sheer incompetence, electric power plants start to either blow up or shut down, there are no people who still posses the knowledge how to return to previous state of society, just as sudden as it risen, humanity starts to collaps-

Harsecy I make 85 dollars each hour for working an online job at home. KLA I never thought I could do it but my best friend makes 10000 bucks every month working this job and she recommended me to learn more about it. The potential with this is endless. >>>>>>www.earn96.com

Eric Poyntz I think this is quite likely, I think once a lot things become computer based your going to pretty much be having people be paid to not work. More jobs will be based in social media either by Vlogs or podcast or maybe even just be taking pictures as you are now essentially a walking adspace.
