But is the problem that many are unemployed, or that they're underskilled? Sure, there are a lot of factory-floor type jobs that haven't been automated (yet!) only because Chinese have been cheaper than robots. But you just have to look at the demand for skilled people coming here on H1-b visas, the employment prospects for the small fraction of Americans willing to put in the work needed for a STEM degree, or indeed, the demand in many skilled trades to realize where the root of the problem lies.
