Your ailing parents could be America's best hope for job growth - Washington Post

Your ailing parents could be America's best hope for job growth - Washington Post | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Forecasts suggest health care - and education - will be the big job drivers in years to come.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

 

I was torn as to where to curate this news. I decided it was surely an educational concern when looking forward. I do think it also speaks of a larger concern we are neglecting. We may need to think about how to give value to work people now do and receive nothing for even though that work in the end makes other people rich. Facebook for instance did not do the work that made it worth so much to so few. A major number of people  gave large amounts of their time making that happen and only a few were compensated. Also all those efforts are often held in what Tim Berners-Lee calls silos and he sights concern over the fact that they are no longer under the control of the original data uploader once they are in someone else's privately owned silos that can be sold off, suddenly shut down or may change to a pay models where you must pay the gate-keeper of that silo to access your stored information. People use to keep such things on their own personal computers and back-ups. Convenience has taken over at somewhat of a price. Again, most people are recieving no money for uploading the data and are usually in fact paying to hold it there for easy access.


Not everyone can be a nurse, educator or computer professional. One would think that it was possible by reading modern educational literature. While I know the need to put food on the table is a strong motivator for education and work it does not advance society nearly as much as true passion for what you are doing as a student or worker. I also know that the passionate students are often discouraged from pursuing a field of study that promotes their learning passion with the same commitment as a bread and butter job training program. That will leave many workers waiting for the day to end most of their 20 to 30+ years of work or put in a position of losing the educational investment made to study a field they cannot accept as a long term position or in many cases can not break into when competing with those that have passion for the work.


Let us hope it is the passionate that are rewarded in  professional education and care professional careers and not those watching the clock to leave to do something they would rather be doing. The world and our work and our planet have changed. We need to re-evaluate what we should add value to for people to continue to earn livings doing the things we need done and not just go about trying to shove everyone, regardless of their shape, into square holes when they really don't fit and we have only a finite number of squares. I believe  we also need to ensure those doing the dirty or often tiring day to day care of our elderly and young earn are living wage or better.
