    Possible sooner , this an old article but we are marching towards it at warp speed.. and don't think they will stop at trucks , retail, fast food workers and even Pilots will be obsolete in the very near future.. http://www.doyouevenhustle.net/truck-driving-job/
     
  2. We won’t need jobs in the coming Democratic Socialism paradise.

    Thats what my socialist coworker in canada was telling me. Automation is going to put everyone out of a job. Robots, sensors. 3D printing. Things will change, we may need less immigrants... but all in all we’ll adjust, learn new skills, and if you have the drive and discipline and your health there will likely be a job available to a person willing to do what it takes to earn it.

    Forgot most manufacturing jobs also.. U think I said before there will also be no lifelong carrers just various jobs and about ever 5 years or so you will have to retrain for another.

    Didnt someone here say, the left wants this country to be the USSA? United Socialist States of America..
    before the titianic sunk, the was a book wrote about the "Titan". it sank also under the near same conditions. That Arnold movie about artificial intelligence taking over mankind, could be a premonition of sorts. we are headed both ways, least we change course..

    To put things into perspective, we just got our 1st automated/drone material handler at work 2 weeks ago. It was pretty cool to watch but does make you wonder. They took it down every aisleway, every stop etc, saved the info and now they just program its stops and pick ups. They plan to buy several more if it works out.

    Truck drivers will be safe for another 50 years. Driverless trucks will be tried and after the first carload of kids it crushes, the law suits will smother them. It will take a while for tech to catch up to the idea.

    I would like to think you are right , but don't think you are.. technology used to evolve every few years then yearly now its almost monthly.. I wouldn't consider truck driving school if I was young. Besides there will be other options.

    Some of the predictions I am seeing say 5 to 10 max.. I don't like self driving cars and trucks think its a horrible idea. I could see the government mandating we all buy them for safety. I'm sorry I like driving and like older paid for cars..

    This will SUCK but I hope they program them not to drive side by side for 30 miles on the interstate preventing faster traffic from passing.
