If you really want to be on the cutting edge of economic thought, the concept of robots making human labor obsolete is the place to be.
This does not really threaten people who are willing to expend the calories of energy to learn skills and trades that either cannot be replaced by robots or that are in the fields of developing, building, maintaining and programming said robots.
But if you're a talentless "liberal arts" major working as a barrista
An idiotic customer service worker in Seattle who thought the minimum wage of $15 was a great idea
you may want to rethink you're grand strategy of just "forcing" employers to pay you more when your lack of genuine skills can be automated at a fraction of the cost.
But, you know, hey, you go and "major in what your heart tells you" and see how well that poppycock strategy developed in the 50's works for you. The rest of us will be preparing for the 2020's.
