    Do you mean robotics- we have had automation for a long time.

    Why bother? Probably because you won't stand in the way of progress. Better figure out how to live with it, or better yet, profit from it.

    If you don't like any of the available jobs make one yourself.

    What is the master's in? And if that is all the drive that person has, he is destined to be unsuccessful regardless of the circumstances. He will likely be the least productive burger flipper at his McDs.

    If you have a worthless masters degree that is on you. Anyone stupid enough to get a worthless masters degree is fully employed making hamburgers.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.
