30 jobs that nobody does anymore

30 jobs that nobody does anymore | SAN ANTONIO XYZ | Scoop.it
Outdated occupations that have bitten the dust.
Al Cannistra's insight:

Imagine a job title of – “Knocker-upper” – yup, don’t think anyone does that any more (as it is meant in the article).

.

Reminds me of a real job we had at the company I worked for – that was a “hooker”!  Really – that describes a person who lifted one object at a time and placed it on a conveyor belt hook for further processing….   Surely, replaced by a robot arm these days (hmm – maybe not – never know when made in China)

.

So have fun down memory lane – jobs now gone!

Amazon HQ2 cities: Here are some of the biggest snubs

Amazon HQ2 cities: Here are some of the biggest snubs | SAN ANTONIO XYZ | Scoop.it
San Antonio, Texas

There's a good reason San Antonio didn't make the shortlist. In October, it took itself out of the running altogether.

In a letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Mayor Ron Nirenberg said that while San Antonio has a "competitive toolkit of incentives" to offer, "blindly giving away the farm isn't our style."

So the city passed on submitting a formal bid for HQ2.

"It's hard to imagine that a forward-thinking company like Amazon hasn't already selected its preferred location. And, if that's the case, then this public process is, intentionally or not, creating a bidding war amongst states and cities," Nirenberg said.

Still, all is not lost for Texas. Both Austin and Dallas are finalists.
Al Cannistra's insight:

the mayor decided we did not need the economic boost and jobs for our city....   really?  wonder if we had a different mayor....
