Tech Advancements Improve/Create Jobs

I’m a major advocate for technological advancement. Where technology can feasibly, intelligibly, and safely facilitate a process and eliminate a job it should. Isn’t it wonderful that commercial cotton pickers alleviated slaves of the exploitative task?! The issue has never been and won’t ever be a shortage of jobs.

It is more so the isms—racism, sexism, ageism, et cetera et cetera—that have always made employment or certain types of existent jobs less available to certain groups of people. This simply shouldn't be in the 21st century.  

Making education/training for skilled jobs more readily available to all persons* would ease fears of technological and other advancements that really improve work quality by making jobs less strenuous and/or tedious while increasing productivity.

*All persons include financially challenged individuals who earn or have too much income to qualify for Pell Grants and/or who can only acquire higher education or a portion of it via high interest student loans that it could take years to repay...          

Industries are moreover compelled to create or support creation of jobs, even while eliminating jobs due to technological improvements because the extent of their success is predicated upon the success of job markets.
