Re: Remind me...
First off, a LOT of those jobs are set to be automated away.
Some. Others not. One of the problems with automating low paid jobs is that you spend money up-front to make savings which, by definition, must be small.
Secondly, isn't anyone concerned that "youth these days" [*] do not want to get their hands dirty?"
Once the economy can't afford to pay out as much in benefits they may find out that they're not given the option; come October they get sent to pick spuds, in January daffs etc.
