There's Unemployed and Then There's Unemployable

There's an interesting article in the Daily Mail regarding the theory that Britain will soon face a socio-economic dilemma in the form of a large segment of the population being unemployable due to a possible reduction in the number of unskilled jobs due to technological advances:

"Britain is in danger of creating 'an army of the unemployable' as disillusioned teenagers quit school with no qualifications. . .

"Mick Brookes, General Secretary of the National Association of Head Teachers, said advances in technology are set to slash the number of jobs available for unskilled workers, with potentially disastrous consequences for society."
