    Why do Trump voters care so much about mining and other such jobs so much? It's not because they're mostly white male industries, it's because resource extraction (mining, oil, timber etc.) is one of the few ways for uneducated hillbillies in Idaho, North Dakota, West Virginia and similar places to make a decent living. It's like the auto industry back in the day, you can come in straight out of high school and make enough money to support a wife and a couple kids. They're not great jobs, they have pretty high fatality rates, but if you grew up in some podunk town where half the people are doing meth and/or heroin and there haven't been decent jobs or schools... ever, it looks pretty attractive.

    This is a good point, malls are really in decline, but I do a lot of internet shopping for two reasons. One is I find a new product, delivered to my door, for sometimes about 60% of the retail price. I'm talking about a regular BR disc, or DVD which I can find sometimes a new movie at the mall for $30 plus... and online for maybe $17. That's an absurd difference.

    The only advantage to going to the mall is the assumption that the service and experience would be the payoff, but in reality, customer service is lost in a vortex these days. People working at the mall honestly are assholes. The only people who seem excited to sell you something are people working in the little center booths, which are usually the products you don't need.

    I still wonder why then, why could we not put strings on the bailout money of what GM had to make with it. Why give them and the banks a bailout and then let them do as they please again with our weak corporate regulation. Most of which is written by the corporations behind closed doors, mostly to bankrupt the little guys so they can have monopolies. IT is obsolete and unsustainable. We are seeing the world from the outside in now and we have a world wide communication network among many other technologies. But the market system restricts innovation that is not profitable in the long term. Chemotherapy is a trillion dollar annual industry, why would you expect them to cure cancer if it would make trillions of dollars vanish. not to mention all the healthcare jobs attached to that industry. Same reason pot is illegal and tobacco is legal. profits. So is this really a free market system with a "democracy". NO, it is a democracy owned by the market system that writes the rules for itself for global domination. The people are just secondary in this system, our only job is to consume so it continues to work, and when it stops working for we the people.... you think there will be a bailout for us? lolololoolo

    The mining industry isn't just coal. We need other minerals for buildings and pieces of technology. If it's not grown, it's mined. That being said I think fossil fuels need to be phased out sooner rather than later.

  • mads max

    GM and Ford got a bailout in our capitalistic capitalism. If capitalism still fuels innovation, i wonder why they needed a bailout to make more v8 cars and trucks? would have been interesting if we said, sure we will bail you out, but you have to restructure the entire manufacturing plants in the USA to create only electric vehicles. Then America would be the number one exporter of electric cars in the world today, instead we bailed them out and let them continue business as usual. And then say capitalism is our God and infallible due to the invisible hand. I guess we feared being called socialists when we bailed out the corporate sector? because bailouts for corporations is capitalism and medicare for all is socialism? seems like some hoodini corporate owned government tricks wrote the bailouts and our ACA. Keep your heads in the sand, your government is not working just for corporations, we have a democracy. Sleep well. Bill marher will never tell you any truth, he profits on the madness with more ratings.

    Most jobs that employ many people will fall victim to technology in a matter of a decade. And our societies, which interprets work-for-money as center of a person's life, are not prepared for that. there won't be enough "new" jobs for the soon to be not just unemployed but unemployable 40% of America.

  • Nunya Bidness
    Nunya Bidness Month ago

    You laugh, but retail jobs make up more than 8 million jobs, or about 6% of the population. Not to mention all the local economies they help support. When those go, so will local economy. And when they go, there will be a LOT of Detroits. Things get worse all the time. They're not getting better. Sure, trump ain't helping, but neither are you when you joke about malls. You people have no idea. You compare it to lamp lighters. Nice.

    You can't stop progress, nor should you try. It's not really sad that the lazy & uneducated dipshits sitting in the middle of financial transactions, taking a piece out of them may now have to learn something & do something useful. Same for the drivers of transports, trains & even airplanes. We are inevitably moving towards a future where machines do it all. It'll be painful for some while getting there but the end result is worth it. A future where you can do what you want & never be in need. Instead of doing some shitty job you hate while struggling to get by. If you wanna make it easier on yourselves, start putting the philanthropists in charge instead of mentally deranged profiteers you fuckin' dummies.

Unless you know how to fix the robot that makes the pizza or computer that drives the truck, there will be little opportunity out there. And all the 30-40ish people who have those minimum wage jobs now will be completely screwed. Its a funny show, but it is kinda scary when you think about it.

    I'm not sure how I feel about this problem. While I agree that retail jobs (or something to replace them) are in way greater need than seriously declined industries like coal mining, part of me doesn't see the need for the stores mentioned to return to form. IMO, most of them are junk and I don't enjoy going to the mall. Is the mall itself necessary? Maybe, but it's hard to say. I don't think anybody will miss RadioShack's overpriced stuff, but I also think some stores that sell unnecessarily cheap junk (like a lot of fast fashion/cheap clothing outlets) aren't good for society either. This was a good piece by Bill but I think it's even more nuanced than he put it.

    Pruitt said 50,000 coal jobs


    About 1500

    The 50,000 was 1500 coal and 48500 mining jobs

    Instead of saying 50,000 coal and other mining jobs, he deliberately dropped the 'other mining' part

    Alternative facts = lies

    And they cut the budget for retraining ex miners

    New Rule: Bill needs to fu*k off about telling me to spend more money. What money? The blood sucking corporations have been devaluing what little I do get and I make more than most people. I can only imagine how bad it is for the vast majority of Americans. Corporations squeeze their employees so tight and then wonder why the economy is struggling and they are going out of business? Trickle down means getting pissed on, not having the economy stimulated. Lately I have been doing everything I can to save and stop spending because I am going to need it. I have no intention of working into my 70's and 80's.

    I find the death of retail stores, and especially the concept of malls, really fucking sad. I spent so many hours just wandering around malls, and honestly, I loved it. It gave an introvert like me a chance to just get out with people and have zero expectations for how to act other than than to walk around and take things in. A lot of memories. Everything is dying off these days. It started with Blockbuster and it's only getting worse. It's almost like the internet is taking more away than it's giving back at this point.

      The US is sitting on the biggest oil and gas reserves in decades due to claiming new fields and using thóechniques like fracking - incidentally the same procedure that can saturate ground water with gas and can literally make tap water flammable.
      In contrast, coal is much less energy efficient to mine and burn, has less auxiliary uses - most plastics are made from oil byproducts - and is mostly mined out already.

      Even so, all any fossil and nuclear fuel power does is back up a bit before going full speed into a dead-end alley. Not only do we use up a finite resource that takes millions of years to regrow - if at all -, we gleefully poison our environment while doing so.
