Do we value "Work"? What happens to workers when robots take over their jobs?

      Manual labor is de-valued today.  Everyone is expected to get a college education, which is increasingly geared toward career prep rather than broad critical thinking and knowledge, but still isn't suitable for everyone. 

      What jobs make the most money? Why? Is society well served by this? Does the nature of work contribute to the  mindless, stressful busyness that characterizes our lives today? To compartmentalization of our lives? 

      What is to become of American workers in the future; most cannot be part of the 'creative class' that generates ideas to be manufactured by robots and supported by workers in India?

Will this increase economic disparity?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
