    Totally agree with this. I’m not sure the guy who previously worked at a Chrysler plant would be interested in sitting at a computer all day. In fact very few people would want to sit at a computer all day. These are people who enjoy working with their hands, they like the ‘big machinery’ concept.

The question still remains, what are these people going to do? It’s not going to be coding.
