Technology ELIMINATES jobs, not vice-versa
I don't know how many times I've heard politicians insist that technology will increase and improve jobs in America, blah, blah, blah.
That popular fantasy cannot be further from the truth. The only people who benefit from any increased productivity that accompanies new technologies are BANKS and their pet corporations who already bleed working Americans dry at every turn.
A check-processing operation at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City will close with the Fed’s move to a new headquarters, eliminating 93 jobs . . . as part of several changes throughout the Federal Reserve system to deal with a shrinking number of checks to process. Payments are increasingly being made electronically through debit and credit cards and electronic presentation of checks.If not, there's always McDonald's and a few motels that need their latrines cleaned - that is, on a part-time basis, of course.
[A] spokeswoman for the Federal Reserve in [Kansas City] said employees might be able to find other jobs at the Kansas City Fed or at Fed banks in St. Louis and Denver that are gaining work.
“If we can absorb them in other areas and they’re qualified, we will,” Raley said.
In total, 280 employees throughout the Fed system, including 16 in Omaha, Neb., will lose work as a result of the changes.And it's only going to get worse as long as blood-sucking leaches control our monetary system.
Another pariah that must not be overlooked is the United States patent system. If not for our patent system, technology would be freely available and would NOT ONLY decrease the need for labor, BUT ALSO decrease the cost of living.
BUT, NOOOO. Thanks to patents, Americans MUST pay more for technology, while technology REDUCES the opportunities by which Americans can earn the money to pay for it.
Americans must realize that along with a fraudulent monetary system, the patent system is THE reason why the fruits of technology and industry inure to the benefit of a small slither of humanity.
IT MUST STOP or the majority of the world's population will be reduced to abject poverty slaving under the high-tech whip of financial overlords.
In the meantime, anyone who tells you that unemployment in America is not a problem is a LIAR.
