Are you ready to have robotic drones flying and buzzing overhead, freeing up our streets, so we can have rapid and efficient delivery? We know Amazon and Google have been working on this for awhile now.
And beating them to the punch is Domino’s Pizza in New Zealand who demonstrated a drone delivering pizza. They plan to begin service before the end of this year! How about that, hot and fresh pizza dropping down from the sky? Sounds like the weather forecast is cloudy with a chance of pizza.
Are you ready for our robotic overlords to descend from the skies while pushing out low-skill workers in the name of efficiency and cost-effectiveness?

57% of Millenials regret their college student loans and 50% have no plan for paying back the seemingly overwhelming amount of debt. What are we doing wrong and what can we do differently? I have some ideas like deemphasizing the four year liberal arts degree (which many get done in five to seven years) and focus on well paying blue collar jobs with a two year degree or less.
In light of this, some Millennials now express buyer’s remorse regarding their college investment, with 57 percent saying they regret taking out as many student loans as they did.
More than one-third (36%) of Millennial graduates with student loans said they would not have gone to college if they had known how much it was going to cost them.
“Unfortunately, the long-term cost of college is leading some graduates to question the value of their investment – in many cases, before they have fully explored their opportunities to significantly reduce their payments,” Coughlin said.
“Similar to our approach to working with student borrowers and their families at the front end of the college journey, we are committed to helping graduates understand their options and manage their debt in a way that complements their broader financial goals.”

Do you support free trade? What about labor unions? Or how about environmental and labor laws?
Another 1,400 manufacturing and distribution jobs lost. I am angry, I understand the pain of the workers. Why did the giant military-industrial supplier United Technologies think it was best to move the jobs to Mexico?
The cost of energy, taxes, transportation, environmental mitigation expenses, and actual labor laws here in the United States. Oh yeah, and greed. Corporations don’t have loyalty to anything other than money. People are who have ethics and need to be in charge.
There is also the fact that many workers at this facility are in the United Steelworkers Union. What did the union do to help keep their workers competitive? Did they constantly ask for more money or less work? Or did they spend the dues collected on political donations and other crony actions?
Think about those factors are you support “free trade” in conjunction with labor and environmental laws we pass here. When we protect the environment and workers rights, we become uncompetitive in a global market, working against manufacturing jobs in the USA. And no, a centrally planned economy for you Socialists and Communists, will never work either (see Venezuela and their rationing of everything since their re-nationalization has broken their economy).
Look, I want Mexico to have a growing economy with jobs for their people. What I don’t want is American jobs lost for that result. It does not need to be a zero-sum process, their is room for both countries to grow manufacturing jobs.
However, the contradictory stances of people here in the United States is pushing this process along. Either stop supporting “free trade” or stop supporting labor and environmental laws. They ARE mutually exclusive unless the trading partner supports labor and environmental rules as well.
If you are unhappy with this move to replace American workers with workers in Monterrey, Mexico, then boycott Carrier & Bryant heating and air conditioning systems. But, you also have to be consistent in what you are supporting.
My thoughts are similar to some of the expletives said by workers in this video.
