Re: NK7Z

  Not to worry, like a cold climate? then come on up to Maine, like a warm climate? then move down to Mississippi where wages in both are still 75% lower than 20 years ago and if you don't feel like working? no problem, between the two they both have the most generous and top welfare benefits in the U.S.. Maine motto "The way life used to be and still is". Of course for the folks that still retain the work ethic Mississippi may have a slight advantage due to the employment opportunities offered by an up and coming  U.S. based manufacturer called MFJ, a trend alluded to in a recent post by K1CJS.

But those manufacturing plants are going to be filled with robots, not people:

The big problem of course is robots can't buy goods. And the people living off the government are unemployed, or getting Social Security or welfare and can not afford to buy anything but essentials. The Fast Food and Service workers ain't making enough to buy anything either. Who is going to be left to be the average everyday consumer and able to afford the bot made goods?

Re: K9IUQ

  Robotics=opportunity.Don't eat out, cut your cable and trade in your SUV for a Ford Focus then take these savings from your monthly welfare/SS checks and invest it in the robotics industry, better yet buy one, two or several robots for yourself then contract them out to work for you, after all this worked out very well for Amway, Avon and Mary Kay.

We did it to ourselves?  No, I don't think so.  Our politicians and the big corporate big shots who look only at the bottom line did it to us--the workers didn't cut their own throats.
