That means that fewer people needed to do the same work.

There is no way to reverse this as technology improves.

How do we deal with that?



Put people to work under government programs similar to the Roosevelt's Civilian Conservation Corps. They could tear down houses in the ghettos, assist and mentor kids in schools, help take care of the elderly, clean up pollution, patrol the Mexican border, work on infrastructure projects, the list goes on and on.

I also think tax policies should heavily encourage hiring and maintaining jobs for AMERICANs. Yeah, you might be able to get a robot to do the job of a human, but if the financial incentives tilted a bit back in favor of hiring a human many employers would choose that option, at least some of the time.

And finally we need programs and incentives to get people to slow down the rate at which they shoot out new babies. Ideally, babies should only be born into circumstances where they can be well provided for and where they will have a good shot at a prosperous future.
