Pretty much why I hate the meme of ‘oh you’re homeless so you must be lazy and not wanting to do anything with yourself. Just because you can’t get a $60k job doesn’t mean you can’t go apply for a $30k or $20k one. Go to goodwill and get a suit then get a shower at a truck stop.’
Never mind the statistic (forgive me for not having it here) on percentage of homeless being either disabled or suffering psychological issues that keep them from holding down a job.
The grim fact is eventually we will hit a point where people will be unemployable because nobody wants human workers in that field.
It won’t happen tomorrow, or even next year, but it is going to happen. We need to figure out what to do when you get people that are skilled labor that are no longer wanted and entry level jobs that are seen as ‘my first job’ or ‘my desperate job’ are not there unless you know robotics well enough to be one of the five guys that roll from site to site to keep a franchise going.
