    are part of the problem, but I also remember a time back in the 1960s when the MacDonald's model was to convert jobs in the restaurant industry into tasks that any teenager could do.  Of course, most teenagers don't need benefits or enough money to actually support themselves and possibly a family.  I seem to recall that some people then protested that it was undermining workers, but others said that teenagers needed part-time and entry-level work, and the model could never spread from there.  

    And then it spread.  The MacDonaldization of America.
