This is soooooooo correct!  People don't realize just how much damage has
been done at the low end of labor.

It is amazing how much poorer the poor are now relative to the rich.

Whatever the social justice of this (and I feel it is appalling) the fact
is, it is going to get even worse.

Happy to hear it discussed.  I somewhat feel as if Paul F. and I have been
saying it back and forth to each other in a vacuum.

That is why the conclusions he and I draw keep linking to robotics...it is
the only way for the trend line to continue...
