Where the Raises Are: Trucking and Academia
By CATHERINE RAMPELL | New York Times – Thu, May 2, 2013
So what do truckers and professors have in common? Ms. Swonk observes that their jobs are both hard to either outsource or automate, unlike a lot of other occupations.
That is becoming less true for professors, though, in the age of massive open online courses, or MOOCs. MOOCs help schools cut down on labor costs by scaling up the number of students who can be taught by a single professor — in some cases, a professor they don’t even directly employ......
But I did notice that, again, you dodged the meat of my post which was about Truckers and Professors!
As to professors and truckers, to each his/her own. One's as essential as the other and both are good, honourable and "to be honoured" professions if done the correct and honest way. I'm fascinated by big rigs, have done studies of them in N. and S. America, Europe, Africa. All are good in their own way but sooooo different. There is no such thing as a bad job if it's useful and carried on professionally and honestly, NONE.
