Waiters And Bartenders Rise To Record, As Manufacturing Workers Drop Most Since 2009
On the surface, the March jobs reported was better than expected... except for manufacturing workers. As shown in the chart below, in the past month, a disturbing 29,000 manufacturing jobs were lost. This was the single biggest monthly drop in the series going back to December 2009. But not all is lost: as has been the case for virtually every month during the "recovery", virtually every laid off manufacturing worker could find a job as a waiter: in March, the workers in the "Food services and drinking places" category, aka waiters, bartenders and minimum wage line cooks, rose again to a new record high of 11,307,000 workers, an increase of 25K in the month, offsetting virtually all lost manufacturing jobs. This is how the two job series have looked since the start of 2015: 24k manufacturing jobs have been lost in the past 14 months compared to an increas of 365K food service workers.

The Billionaire Hypocrisy of Helping the Poor - YouTube
We're reminded every day of the kindness of the billionaire class - and the millions they spend on charity in American and around the world. But the fact is - Americans wouldn't need the charity - if they just had good-paying jobs.

Will Advances in Technology Create a Jobless Future? | MIT Technology Review
Who Will Own the Robots? - We’re in the midst of a jobs crisis, and rapid advances in AI and other technologies may be one culprit.

Inequality: What Can Be Done? BY ANTHONY B. ATKINSON &! The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies BY ERIK BRYNJOLFSSON AND ANDREW MCAFEE // &! Paul Krugman - “A lot of what’s happening [in income inequality] is not just the gods of technology telling us what must happen but is in fact [due to] social constructs that could be different.” - gov policy, corporate policy (ie 4-day work week and 6-hour days because productivity and profit margin do allow for that, and more brings diminished returns etc etc but will that go down well with Wall Street?)

Elizabeth Warren: No Need to Stop Uber-ized Workforce, but Must Invest in Education (Video) | Re/code
Warren defends Uber-ization of labor // Elizabeth Warren, the Massachusetts senator denounced by some as a “far-left” socialist radical, came out in support of the “Uber-ization” of the labor force. “We’re not going to stop tech so that lots of people will work,” Sen. Warren said at yesterday’s Code Conference. “That’s like saying, ‘Let’s get rid of heavy equipment and let people dig with a spoon.'” // "how the on-demand economy is creating full-time jobs out of part-time work. Several startups, like Uber, rely on contract employers. Google CEO Larry Page has predicted that part-time working will soon be the norm." // marketplace lowers prices! its inevitable. Except there is regulation and a guaranteed income /w around minimum wage. // Wall Street - Capitalism - rootless global corporations (& money have no conscience) has no self-limiter. Is no stakeholder in a local economy has no shared economic interest whether in a local economy nor country. // on.recode.net/1eAwEE0

Britain needs a real manifesto for growth | Business | The Guardian
There is a chronic shortage of supply in transport, energy and housing. Roads, rails and airports are clogged; we are in danger of the lights going out due to low electricity capacity and pathetic rates of house building have generated stratospheric prices. Building infrastructure produces permanent economic gain, but provokes temporary political pain. Nimbies object to disruption and we have been reluctant to compensate them properly. So it’s no surprise that people use the archaic planning system to block and delay investment projects. Politicians find it easier to prevaricate and reverse their predecessors’ decisions and set up ad hoc celebrity reviews (e.g. the coalition’s bottling out of Heathrow expansion). When the time comes for spending cuts, investment is first on the chopping block because the economic bruises only come out years later. Political short-termism is mirrored by corporate myopia which holds back innovation. There remains a lack of competition in banking. ...
