I think one question to pose is, "Do we as a society choose to keep some low level jobs that don't require as much education available for a certain part of society?  I mean we all can't be rocket scientists.  I think the world needs ditch diggers too."

Roll in the robots!

There will always be people who don't want to think much while working. Some just want to use their bodies. I think there is some merit to that idea. At periodic points in my career, I think I would rather have a manual labor job. Instead of figuring out a whole electrical design, I would just sweep a floor, pound a nail, saw wood, operate a machine.

As we educate ourselves and the dominating culture shows the lifestyle of the entertainment business, few people will opt for manual labor. That is, unless it pays well. If I am not mistaken, farming does not. So, roll in the robots!
