We could pass laws about this OR we could accept that not all jobs are for all people.Some jobs are easier for people with long skinny fingers, and that is okay.
Anderson comes across as quite reasonable, though politically left of center.
But one important issue that was just touched on has outsized importance to the topic: Anderson says that the scaling up of factories in the 19th century led to the imbalance in power between bosses and workers and the latter's immiseration.
I no longer need to pick kids up from school by a certain time or be home to help with homework.
I don't mind working late, or weekends, or traveling. I'm not sure you can generalize a 200m person work force.
"A more fundamental error, perhaps, is that Anderson implicitly believes that it's possible in principle for all people to work in conditions that are at all times pleasant to them. People are too varied in personality, ability, and inclination to work hard for enforced job security to comport with economic dynamism and productivity growth.
