19. I'd disagree that the real job market is even this simple to look at

it certainly is a start but there is a larger issue for the future where fewer workers are needed.

There are more people and fewer jobs that equation doesn't balance in the face of more productivity and increasing automation. There is a conversation/debate that has to happen in the coming decades about how our society works when millions of people can't support themselves or are turned into modern day peasants among the few royals and the ranks of lesser nobles beneath them.

There are millions in poverty now in our country that number will keep growing as time goes on there simply won't be enough jobs for us all let alone ones that pay a living wage.
