The problem is not exactly jobs.  For the last 20 or 30 years,
and especially in the last five, severe inflation has been taking
place, but only in certain areas: real estate, stocks, and to
some extent in collectibles: in general, stuff the rich buy and
sell, or the middle-class person who is made temporarily
rich with a big mortgage.  This money, or maybe I should put
it in quote, "money", is not being invested as working capital
because it does not actually represent labor or the goods that
labor produces.  Much more money, in the form of credit, has
been created than can exert a believable claim on goods and
services.  Hence there are still a lot of low-capital, low-wage
jobs not requiring much investment, but not other, better jobs,
the jobs which do require real investment and for which learning a
skill would pay off.

What is still open to question is how the present situation is
going to break down.  It might be through either severe
deflation in the stock and real estate markets, or through
severe inflation as the government "prints" money, that is,
creates credit more or less by force, and hands it out to
whomever to keep things afloat.  Neither scenario is going
to be pleasant.
