People look down on McDonald’s employees but fail to realize that if all these folks left McDonald’s and pursued “better careers” your ass wouldn’t be able to get a McDouble with an Oreo McFlurry at 3am.
You can’t demand a service while simultaneously degrading those who provide it for you.
maids, waitresses, janitors, garbage collectors, and construction workers.
anyone in food service
also people who work in retail
I mean we’ve basically achieved star trek replicators
it’s natural enough to refine the process and get it cheaper and more accessible
but for THAT to happen the entire commercial infrastructure that the current economy runs on would have to change
so instead of just selling completed products you’d be selling the components to print those products and the instructions for the printer on how to build them
of course instructions can be pirated
but that’s why you sell the physical resources, the “ink”
but of course to really get these 3d printers used in a widespread and efficient and productive way it would requite the megaindustries to fucking calm down and stop trying to rule the world and ruin it at the same time
yeah i can see why it’s gonna take a while unfortunately
