This is no different than the collapse of essential workers in low skill jobs. The problem isn’t a lack of workers. It’s a lack of sufficient pay to make those jobs attractive. Being a trucker isn’t for everyone and paying them the minimum doesn’t make for good worker retention. Same with seafarers and dockworkers. Every kink in the supply chain is overworked and most aren’t being compensated enough for their labours. And then people wonder why people are leaving their jobs…

The race to the bottom is in the final stretch. They are figuring out that our parents could afford a home and 2 cars on 1 income, and we can't afford a home and one car on two incomes. And we don't like it.

“God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy sh*t we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off!” - Tyler Durden

It’s makes a good argument for more green energy. The less dependence the world has on oil and gas the less important this area is. So the the threat of closing the straight may someday be less of a concerning thing.

^ That.

No matter how good TV made life look when we were kids, most of us never had a chance to begin with. We were doomed before popping out of the womb. I've worked since I was 16 (actual jobs, not small stuff like shoveling snow or cutting lawns, which I did), even worked multiple jobs at one time or another and am still no closer to breaking even let alone getting ahead.

It was all a lie from the get go.
