Automation ironically forces men into more "personal care" work

Here’s a New York Times story in Sunday Review, p. 3 by Susan Chira, “The Jobs Men Don’t Wamt” specifically male nurse, and especially home health aide or caregiver, story link.

Bu on p. 4, Kai-Fu Lee writes “The real threat of artificial intelligence” is to force people into jobs in tending to other people, things that we view as volunteering today, link.  Edward Luce, in “The Retreat of Western Liberalism”, which I will review soon, attributes the same idea to “remote intelligence”, or offshoring. Trump is trying to stop that.
