Going on the Account: Why She Takes the Sweet Trade

Small Warning: Slight language warning for following…

Saw a post on io9.com about a new movie going online next month:  GHOSTS WITH S*IT JOBS.  The premise of the piece concerns a documentary done in 2040, about 20 years or so after the Western economy collapses, focusing on those born in the slums of Toronto who take on menial jobs that no one in China is willing to do.

 

It looks interesting as it comes up with menial degrading jobs of the future, such as human spambot and wild silk foragers, and just about any piece that tries to imagine economic changes in the future draws my attention.

And besides, with jobs like that potentially being available if North America faces a major downgrade, could you blame people wanting to go on the account…?
