However accurate the rest of your post is (very accurate), you miss that in another ten years there simply won't be any jobs for those people to do. Literally the whole point of Uber is to get rid of their drivers. Mercedes Benz and Tesla both have self-driving vehicles, and so those millions of trucking jobs will soon disappear. Uber as a side gig is great, for some, but that'll vanish once there is a fleet of self-driving taxis that use tracking apps and location services to predict where to be for the best fares.
Literally, by the time this matters again, it won't matter at all. You can't bring those jobs back from China in any meaningful way, as I've tried to explain a thousand times with varying degrees of success. Not only are the wages lower, but the Chinese factories are now practically fully automated. Foxconn just laid off thousands of workers because the robots they are building are doing the jobs that the people who used to build the robots are now doing for, near as dammit, free, 24/7. Robots beat even slave wages - they don't need to sleep!
We are rapidly being replaced in most "bulk" jobs. Expensive speciality "knowledge workers" are also highly at risk from some gimp with a CS degree building an expert system over their lunch, too.
I'm in a job that literally cannot be outsourced, and cannot be completely de-skilled, though a lot of un- & underskilled people are flooding the market, and learning via YouTube and forums. So as everyone in the country tries to become a locksmith, the market saturates, and bingo, no-one needs to pay a locksmith again, because they are one or they know one. Likewise with basic IT skills being learned by lots of people, some will become highly skilled, but others will always use YouTube and StackOverflow and GitHub, and, well, you end up with hte Internet of Shit, and massive DDoS attacks run by toasters.
Back in my day, you had to craft the packets by hand before whistling them down the phone line yourself. Which reminds me - have you heard the one about the bugle player being replaced by a £20 electronic trumpet for Remembrance Day services? Because I heard it today...
