"Get a job" is the problem here.
Take where I live, there's literally no available jobs as is. Graduates from the local highschool are being forced to move to another town, to find work. Now automate half of the jobs in this town. Suddenly half the town is forced to live a frugal life, or move somewhere else to find another job.
Lets take me as an example, rent per year is $17,160 kangaroo dollars. As per my previous remark, 10k 'murican dollars is about 13k dollaridoos. I'm 4.156k dollaridoos in debt, just to live in this house. I haven't eaten yet, I'm probably naked (not really, but clothes don't last forever), my car is not full of fuel.
How would I survive on 13,000 dollaridoos? I can't afford to go job hunting. The car is out of fuel, and to put fuel in it, I gotta dip into the rent money. Assuming I haven't died of starvation.
