Maybe if we take away wires, and all of us bring electrons to machines in buckets, then all of us can have "jobs."

The jobs are gone and are not coming back.

a little-noticed study the Labor Department released several months ago found that the benefits of the biggest federal job training program were “small or nonexistent” for laid-off workers.
We have 10 percent unemployment. So why don't we just work 10 percent less, instead of throwing away 10 percent of our people?
