    Will the lower socioeconomic classes such as the lower, working, & lower middle classes

    become permanent underclasses in America within the next 10-50 years with the increasing computerization of jobs?  With this increasing computerization of jobs & computerization of education in America, will opportunities for lower, working, & lower middle class children to get out of their particular class of origin become impossible?  Why? Why not?

    These jobs and classes of people have been here from the beginning . And they are a permanent part of all economies , Why should that change , just because of the shifting definition of todays P.C. culturally defined class wars ?    All  of the  classifications  and job levels are evolving too , where once  unskilled  manufacturing jobs in America "fed " the poorer  now the new lower level jobs are the fast food joints on every corner , even  entry level  higher tech jobs .

    So what has changed  , other than  our present "wealth re-distribution "  demands by millenniums , fed by politically incited leftists ?

    I wrote about this in my hub The Great Shift Toward Automation and the Future of Employment. A lot of jobs won't go away due to human demand that other humans do them, and automation will lower the cost of labor due to competition - so as long as we don't mandate a high minimum wage or excessive benefits on employers, employment will remain strong.
