I don’t think we’re going to see robots fixing our plumbing anytime soon
If you go with what’s intuitively obvious (one would think), then yes, of course scarcity of labor…

Absolutely! I tell this to youngsters all the time, conservation usually goes like this:

Kid: “I want to study accounting”

Me: “If I was graduating high school today, I’d skip college, find an older plumber that is looking for an apprentice, and spend the next 4 years learning that trade”

Kid: “Gross! That is a blue collar job, my parents say I need to go through college”

Me: “In my career I have automated away hundreds of jobs. I have never automated away a plumber. People will NEVER want their shit to stay in their house, and they don’t want to walk to the stream a mile away carrying buckets. May not be glamorous, but there is a lot of money in it and you don’t have to go into debt learning how to be a plumber”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
