Trumpsters and Jobs

I keep reading about how the Trumpsters talk about jobs and lack thereof. Well, there are plenty of jobs out there, but many need the some kind of training or skill, which few of them have.

They don't seem to accept that the world is changing. Many jobs require basic computer skills, and/or the ability to run machines. You can find many jobs if you have these skills, and they don't seem to want to relearn them.

many Trumpsters are older people who had jobs in the old industries and those positions have left them as companies gear up to modern equipment. They don't want to relearn. They just think that the world owes them a job.

Early last century, as the automobile started to gain a foothold, many of the horse and carriage jobs disappeared and as much as those people wanted their jobs to come back, modern technology (new automotive and airplane) was moving in a different directions. Those horse and buggy jobs were going to be few and far between.

If they really are serious about working in the modern world, they are going to have to go with the flow and learn some of the new technologies. It really isn't that hard, and there are lots of different categories that they can learn and work in.

Even my job today is changing quickly. I am 61 and have to learn to adapt. Before two years ago, us programmers would write programs that would work on desktops and basic laptops. But now, we are having to learn how to program for Mobile devices and much more web design instead of basic desktop applications. We have to adjust and I think they have to too, if they want to continue to be a part of the modern world.
