Manual Workers in the Physical Economy Receive Massive Pay Raises

Manual Workers in the Physical Economy Receive Massive Pay Raises

The CEO of UPS recently said that drivers would make $170,000 per year after working for the company for five years. After this, there will be a lot more chances in the real market.

A few years ago, there was a lot of worry that robots would take away jobs in the market for real goods. 

This group includes people who drive cars, work on farms, fly planes, fix plumbing, work on oil rigs, dock at stores, build houses, etc. Each of these jobs requires a different set of movement and thinking skills.

Many of the ideas for changing the economy have come from venture capitalists and tech writers who have never worked in the real world. 

The Challenge of Digitizing the Real World

In reality, it’s not too hard to digitize things like information, insurance, bills, or funds, but it’s very hard to scan the “real” world.

If you still don’t believe me, look at how much money companies that make self-driving trucks made between 2015 and 2020.

Even though they got money from some of the best companies in the world (Google, Uber, etc.), the most successful venture capital firms, and some of the smartest minds in the digital economy, the vast majority of these businesses have now failed.

Unfortunately, it is famously hard to digitize and, by extension, organize the real world. The world as it is is a mess. We live in a world that is both random and complex.

There are some things that can’t be figured out in a lab or on a machine. 

Changes in the population are mostly to blame for the big wage cuts that labor has won over the past year. The business needs more young people to do physical work, but there aren’t enough of them in the United States. In the long run, the fact that industry is coming back to North America is great news.

The need for physical work will be a big problem, but this could finally mean that physical jobs will pay much more than digital ones.

This will have long-lasting effects. There has been a trend for a long time. Get used to the area. It’s very beautiful.
