“Can you hear me now?”

Posted in Culture of Lickspittle at 11:02 am by George Smith

Unintentionally hilarious, a list of the “fastest growing” jobs in America, carrying on the illusion that a country of over 300 million people, at least half of which have been left behind, can struggle back to success and revitalize productivity by becoming teeth scrapers, opticians (note, NOT opthamologists) at the mall, “audiologists” (can you hear me now?) and “genetic counselors.”

How many “genetic counselors” do you think we need? These are “advisors” for the wealthy and their upper middle class shoeshiners on who ought to be marriage stock for breeding with so as to have eugenically optimized children. Or advise people on the bad news genetic time bombs that will probably kill them. Quite a career for all the budding Josef Mengeles in the population.

Yes, it’s going to revolutionize the future.

Hey, might as well train to be a foot tech, someone who can scrape feet free of excess horny keratin or someone who makes little tones through headphones so hearing aids to the well off can be prescribed.

It’s just the kind of job market that would be perfect for a wealth hideway, say Monaco, Lichtenstein, Basel in Switzerland or Singapore.

Effin Ay, the future’s so bright you want to claw out your eyes.

    Tell the truth: if you could live in Switzerland, would you?

    The sad part is that a good portion of those jobs require a very expensive four year degree. Some, like occupational therapist or physical therapist, will only hire if the applicant has a master’s degree in the field.

    My personal favorite from this list is #15 (tie) Cartographer. It seems like the world is anticipating that maps will be redrawn (though not in a way we might like) as one of many Trump Effects.

    I don’t know. When I found out Tina Turner moved there I became interested.

    You’ll also have noted that you can’t be an occupational therapy aide or ambulance driver, home health aide, physical therapist -aide- etc and have a family without getting everyone on food stamps.

    Also, the explosion in low paying assistand and attendant physical therapy jobs, I presume brought about by the boom in retirement home housing where most of the help is paid squat and the business siphons off whatever is left of Boomer assets.
