Jobs in the health care sector are fairly immune to outsourcing and automation. I’d like to see a future where truck drivers get retrained as, say, dental hygienists. My Russian dentist has fairly big, manly hands. Unlike @Elt1 I am not convinced men hands are too big for dental work. :slight_smile:

My wife can get free medical and dental in Russia…She would rather pay our female small Mexican dentist than trust the Russian health care system
