“Are you ready?”

trust the machine

We are not gung ho about the idea of driving in a car that we don’t control. But at much as we don’t like it, it’s one of those things that eventually will come to market. But who will be the first people willing to get into the car of a self driver. We are already on edge when someone we know is driving the car. But what about a machine that does not have the cognitive ability to make the decisions we make in certain stations. Now, I will admit, drinking and driving will surely decrease over time with this usage. Hey, we might even have this for people who want to go out but not drive. So there is an upside to the tech change.

laws to be passed

Now let’s observe the laws that must be put into place before this hits the market. What will be the new changes when going for your license? Because before, you had to be at least 15 years old to receive a learners permit in the majority of America. Then you had to be 16 years old to receive your license. But then, what happens when you are using a self driving car. What are the new laws associated? You’re not actually driving this car, so technically, you shouldn’t have to be any age to buy a car. But of course, politicians will find a way to sneak some type of age, if not additional fees to trying to buy a vehicle that is self driving.

petroleum or electric

We have so many trade deals with countries from around the world. What would happen these are electric and they seem to quickly catch on. We depend so much on oil, especially in the automotive industry. How does effect the profits of the business? Do we see countries fighting back against the new electric form. Or, will there become an even greater demand for oil in these new cars? These new cars may run on gasoline, but aid in making the business even more money. No matter what the decision, there will be many debates and meetings on this matter.

“Where’s the work?”

Manufacturing in the United States of America has been the backbone of our country for over 100 years. Michigan for example, was king with multiple cities booming because of the manufacturing of vehicles. But in the recent years , there is an aging demographic who are still old enough to work in factories. There is also a young generation hoping to get in the door the same as their parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. On the other hand, we are entering a new era of progress. So the young as well as the aging demographic will need to come into this new era. It’s tough because they are so resistant to change.

Well why, why not change and roll with the punches? For starters you have an unskilled and uneducated group of people that are not able to jump on board. America must get into this new industry of technological innovation through app creation, hardware, software, and all around mechanics. But taking on something this advanced is quite intimidating. Especially for those who are used to repetitive factory work. You get one task and do that hours each day. You might get rotated so you don’t become too stuck in knowing one aspect of the factory. But come on people, this is a new age.

I guess this is the same reason why President Elect Donald J. Trump is such an attractive candidate. His promises to bring back manufacturing jobs and remove what is perceived to be illegal immigrants in the way of that progress. Now if I were a betting man I would say most likely little to no jobs are coming back. American corporations can’t compete with the market if they do. And technology is moving at such a scale, humans used as manufacturing labor is an archaic form of production. No one cares if you can stand at a machine or use a drill. Why pay you $30 per hour when we can pay $3 per hour in Mexico.

So in society we have a lot of fears. But when you’re a person in the know, or willing to put yourself in the know, you can elevate. These types of individuals aren’t worried about Trump being president. They’re going to be fine because they are some of the most resourceful citizens in this country. And that’s my theory on the United States job market. We don’t have a lack of jobs problem in this country. America has a qualification problem. We have plenty of opportunities out here to make money. It’s just the people who need them are not qualified. Imagine walking outside everyday seeing the streets paved in gold. Yet you can’t grab even the smallest of piece because you don’t have the tools to pluck gold from the ground.

In the end, my theory is that instead of bringing back factory jobs, we should be training. Training people in this new tech era. Manufacturing is for machines not people. The man or woman who can use their hands to work are becoming dinosaurs. There is just too much money to be made from not bringing back manufacturing in America. The way I see it, you have to take some night classes, get on the internet and play around, do something. Do something to figure out this new thing because it is our future. And if you can’t compete, you’ll be left behind.
