4 thoughts on “The Second Job You Don’t Know You Have

  1. So there IS a name for this phenomenon. I refuse to use self-checkout and always go INTO the bank when I need to do anything there. Unfortunately, that makes me something of an anachronism. I reject robotic reality and yearn for human conversation. As I type my response into a computer. Ironic, no? At least the communication is between humans using a robotic interface, rather than completely automated. That’s something, I suppose.
    It also makes me more convinced that by getting out of my old job and into the current situation was in fact a good idea. Livestock need to be managed by humans. Humans should be trained in lifesaving skills by other humans. It’s kind of a thing. Here’s hoping I’m right.

    • I totally agree. I’ve had 2 jobs now that went to India that required a college degree and experience and still got out sourced

      • I don’t even understand how that works. You can’t tell me that experience and education are identical worldwide.

        • On the first job they were paid $160 a month to my 50k plus and they had to bring the jobs back because they couldn’t do the work. Aetna sent 3500 jobs from our office to India and had already sent 1500 that I had helped train when mine went. The second time, I have no clue about what happened but I no that the outsourced jobs that my company now has are coming back too for the same reason
