This is a horrifying graph.

Amazon aside, every state is Walmart, McDonald's, grocery store. 4 might be grocery store, might be restaurant, 5 might be restaurant, might be grocery store, might be Amazon.

I don't know if I've seen a better argument made for a livable minimum wage.

    Let's be honest. In 10 years many of these people won't even have these jobs. Localized GPS + drones are going to take out so many jobs in warehousing, from people who pick orders all the way to inventory control specialists.

Half million employees at Amazon.

75,000 warehouse robots added LAST YEAR ALONE.
