Of course technological advancement eliminates some jobs. But imo, the primary cause of loss of jobs in our country are treaties like NAFTA (which are purported to be about free trade, but are actually the opposite), corporate welfare to companies that leave the USA, and heavy taxation and regulation at home. I also think the corporate pay scale is all screwed up...I think it's outrageous that some corp. employers pay low level employees minimum or close to minimum wage while paying out $millions to CEOs. They may be more valuable than "low level" employees, but how much more? Twice as much would be saying alot, but in some cases, they're being paid thousands of times more than hard working employees and that's just sick and twisted.
