    You are making a qualitative judgement without any comparable information.... a good job compared to what?
    You would have to look at the succuess of the national interstate system, comfort for the aged in medicare, the space program, the invention of the internet, preeminence of the military, sophistication of the CDC, gains by the EPA etc. etc. and show a system that would have produced more for less.

    With our system of fiat money, it's would be a pretty hard jugement to make anyway... the advancements of the system give value to the money in the system so that they are mutually dependent. It's entrely possible that if our government did not spend the amount of money it does, the value of the your money could be much less, like you would have not internet to buy for any amount or you have a lot of money but no defense against world-wide pandemic. Basically it's just a pointless propaganda point from people with their own aganda believed by people without understanding.

    Tell her to become a nurse. It's a career that you will always have a job. You get paid serious $$ and with BSN nursing schools so difficult to get into and complete there will always be a need.

    funny article though. Too much money in the med field to not have nurses. Their role is too important and irreplaceable. These robots do sound like it can replace nursing aids

    "Instead, they perform routine and arduous tasks, freeing nurses up to attend to patients with immediate needs. This is one industry where it seems the integration of robots will lead to collaboration, not replacement—"

    If anything the article gives further creed to my recommendation.

    Growing older population, already a lack of nurses

    Get your daughter in the nursing career. She can work 3 day weeks almost anywhere in the country bringing in 75k or more a year thus providing her the financial flexibility and free time to further her education in the medical field or another profession as a backup career. It's a high stress and tough job, but also rewarding and you can't argue against 3 day weeks while bringing in that kind of cash.

    Cynical part of me feels like the future of employment is we keep getting more and more efficiency with technology/machines and that cost savings lines the pockets of CEOs and the rank and file workers stay stagnant.
