With advances in automation and the possible issue of technological unemployment, we might need to consider a future reduction in the work day for different types of jobs.

Try out the 28 hour workday...it's not really "work" tho if it's something you enjoy doing.

Sometimes there's no work too cuz u gotta wait on paperwork and shit.

I agree the unemployment rate is outrageous and that only count people actively seeking employment....not all those welfare fucks that buy cartons of cigarettes and sell loonies on the street. That's kid shit

15% unemployment my zip code

http://www.city-data.com

I can look at all the census data down to the block or two radius

You can look up any zip code, state city w/e

Some of the info is very tentative tho cuz a lot is estimates on 2011 data. Just like my gas bill is estimated...

If I was working for someone else I would like to work 4 hours a day. Was never an option at places I worked. For myself tho it's kinda hard to think that way but I do have others doing the work sometimes and I still feel like I am working all day. Kinda hard to look away from your own business that way. Mind you in time I might just farm it all out and just do the paper work.

Just call me Sally, I am not that smart, ;)

If all progresses well money becomes obsolete and so will workdays with a mandatory amount of hours :2thumbsup:

And when we all can work where we fit, are needed and/or would like to it will be something we don't mind doing (in most cases of course :D)!

Automation doesn't allow people to work less. It requires that that those replaced by automation to please leave the premises. You no longer have a job. Or you won't get hired in the first place because machines are holding the jobs that people used to do.

Fuck the economy! You shouldn't want to be hired to save something that doesn't serve you. Just work for yourself :2thumbsup:

I seriously doubt those running things are going to stand for it - they would rather just dump people homeless and let them starve - right now for the average job in this country you have to work yourself to death just to go deeper in debt
