    Low skill jobs that will be eliminated in the future world

    What will happen to people will low skills in the future? All these low skill jobs are going to disappear... No more taxi cab drivers or Uber people... Driverless cars are going to start to dominate America in the near future. Even light-rail use will fade, as summoning a Google car will be much more convenient and efficient then the archaic rail travel.

    Fast food will be all automated through machines. We'll no longer have burger flippers. We might not even have people taking orders. It will be a machine you talk into.

    Retail checkout people will further be cut as more people prefer self check out.

    What other jobs wont we see in the future?

    Perhaps the meteor will have impacted our planet before it gets to that point.
    DJ may know servers, but he obviously doesn't know shit about car batteries in the southwest.

    I think the likelihood of humans nuking the planet is closer to happening. I'll make a bet with you and you can pay up in the next dimension.

    Hopefully self-assembling burritos will eliminate the need to employ germ-bearing critters at Chipotle et. al.

    If you've been to a Jack in the box or Carls Jr. in a major city recently, they are already supplementing their cashiers with automated pos's (point of sale). So that road is already being driven down and is just a matter of time. I feel the prep of the food will take alot longer to automate since so many of these places allow substitutions and variances in your order (i mean they never get it right anyways, but hey). Once they perfect autonomous cars, taxi/bus drivers will go the way of the dodo. Limo drivers will still have a place because part of their services is customer interaction with the driver. Cashiers at places like walmart will go by the wayside.

    The bottom line is while they present higher up front cost, machines dont require sick days, personal days, health insurance, maternity leave.....etc... And they dont shoot the place up for being fired. Its a win win.

    Maybe they'll go to classes and learn how to repair/maintain broken automated checkout machines and broken self-driving cars.

    Yes, as they're highly skilled, at least the good ones are.

    OTOH, I could see this job being taken over by machines.

    Intelligence is now the easiest thing for computers to replace.

    If a machine can do it cheaper, faster, and more reliably, what CEO would say no?

    Depends on how you define intelligence, though much of the cognitive neuroscience community would disagree with this. Intelligence (i.e., learning and flexible application of knowledge) is actually the hardest thing to replace - by a lot.

    Though the second statement is absolutely correct.
