    More and more automation, less and less jobs and in the uk the government penalise those who can't find work more and more all the time, not a rosey future at all is it for a children.

    World needs to adopt the Living Wage where we all get enough to live off, then you work for extra, so we get £1500 per month for doing sweet FA, then you work part time if you want another say £500 per month, part time meaning enough jobs going around that everyone can pretty much get a job.
