you know how technology is taking over all the jobs? i think it’s interesting that we have so much technology but it seems as if not many people even benefit from it because people are working almost harder than before all the technology was around. society is still trying to ‘correct itself’ or figure out how to manage everything and i am hopeful that people will soon discover what to do to make things fair in society. i don’t think jobs will completely disappear; i think people enjoy feeling needed or will just move on to working on another issue if one gets replaced with technology. i think that some people will enjoy doing something even though technology could have replaced themselves…for example, people enjoy working with nature and farming even though they could get machines to do the job.
okay those were just some thoughts.
this is what bothers me about tipping and our society though…
i’m trying not to be self centered, but when i got a job as a pre-school teacher i started noticing how some jobs are still not seen or respected at all in our society. i think i may have noticed it before but i noticed it a lot more after i had the job. anyways, it bothers me how people will whine about the wal-mart workers and the teachers and the waiters and how they are mistreated but forget about all the other jobs that are really hard and underpaid. like, people will shop at other grocery stores instead of wal-mart but i’m pretty sure both employees are treated almost the same.
all i want is around 30k. i want a tiny house, basic needs met, and a few wants for peace of mind. if i had any more than that i would give it away to people. what i hope for myself is to have enough money to just tip people i know are underpaid whenever i get the chance. like, i think i would enjoy going to wal-mart for groceries, and leaving the cashier a few bucks. then going to the daycare to pick up my child, and give the teacher a gift. i would like to do stuff like that.
