Yes...very true, it is not easy for the young people.<quoted text>
At one time, high school graduates could take jobs in factories and plants where the work was tedious on assembly lines but the pay wasn't that bad.
Also, in some states, children followed in their parents' footsteps and worked in the mines and quarries where the pay, again, wasn't that bad.
Technology has in many ways become a bad thing.
A lot of high schoolers who can't find decent paying jobs because computers or robots do them now find themselves with no other choice but to go to school to put off the inevitable - working at McDonalds.
Sad but true.
Skill Skill SKILLS.....You have to have skill to compete.
The robot replaces the unskilled worker, but not the skilled worker.
