Jobs in the robot economy
View the NY Times article about Latino under-enrollment in Obamcare for the photograph. The caption of the photograph reads: “Jesica Arias, a program coordinator, helped an insurance applicant last month at an AltaMed Resource Center in East Los Angeles.”
This demonstrates the kind of jobs that people will do in the near-term robot economy. Even though the federal government and the states have created a completely automated Obamacare enrollment process, we see that poor people with low IQs are not smart enough to use the self-service solution and require a human “program coordinator” to help them (and because she works for AltaMed, I assume that the poor people with low IQs walk out with a health insurance plan that’s profitable for AltaMed).
I predict that jobs helping poor people with low IQs will be a growing sector of the labor force in the robot economy.

Not related to robots, but you have to love this excerpt:
California allows young people who were granted deportation deferrals by the Obama administration to sign up for Medicaid. State Senator Ricardo Lara is expected to introduce legislation this week that would allow immigrants living here illegally to sign up for the exchange and receive state subsidies.
Welfare benefits for illegal aliens, no wonder why taxes in California are so high.
But the illegal aliens are afraid to sign up because they can’t believe that we would give away free stuff to people who are breaking our immigration laws. They think that gringos can’t possibly be that stupid and it must be a trick to get them to identify themselves for deportation.
