New inventions take away jobs

Over the last 40-plus years I have noticed that most new inventions in the U.S. lead to a loss of jobs as the business people in this country have found they can make millions of more dollars by farming it out to counties who pay 25 cents an hour or less. When I graduated from high school 63 years ago, every boy and a lot of girls had summer jobs waiting for them. Most of them at a dollar an hour or less.

What jobs are waiting the athletes and students in today’s high schools? A fancy new trash can eliminates some student a summer working for the trash company dumping the old style. Fishing has gone to all the illegals and foreigners have been brought in to do the work. The whole government is anti-jobs as it is much easier and more profitable to just collect welfare and food stamps instead of working for a living.
