Jobs availability

We are often heard to complain about immigrants stealing our jobs when, the reality is, we should really blame the robots

I would urge extreme skepticism when you see/read any, and ALL, statistics that the government has anything to do with re collecting data.

Even within a given privately held business organization, data is reduced to simplistic black and white numbers that in turn can be interpreted in a variety of ways, and that the interpreter may have absolutely no expertise in (re that segment of the business); and far, far too often the culture of the business absolutely inhibits dissent when the interpreter is a "boss" who, in a vertically structured organization, is "above/outranks the dissenter on the organization hierarchical chart. Unless you have personally ever been an attendee at an office meeting that dragged on for hours that left you wondering why no one was killed by someone who worked for the organization due to the rancor, you really can't "appreciate" how decisions are made in the real world, to include a perception that no one really knows what is going on in the business (but it's the kiss of death if they let on that they don't).

And when it comes to a private business reporting anything about their affairs to the government forget it re accuracy, never mind whether the data is skewed by some event/factor that complicates the "paperwork" that the paperwork was never designed to begin with to detect.

The best example that the posters on this board are most likely to be familiar with are the govt stats for the unemployment figures which are "cooked" to portray the job situation in the most positive light re trends, and outlook projections.

The govt has zero interest in reporting on anything to do with the huge "underground economy"/off the books/under the table, i. e., it is public policy to pretend that it doesn't exist, never mind that zero taxes are collected on it.
