Plumber (trades) The pipes in your house aren't changing any time soon.

Funeral Director. People just keep on dying

Stand up comedian

IT. We'll still need people to make sure our machine overlords don't break down.

Working at the DMV.
Because even AI bots would kill themselves working there.

Congressman/woman. There's no way they're letting their power/money disappear.

Any government job. They may be obsolete, but they will never be eliminated.

Anything in the building trade. HVAC, plumbing, electrician, tile installer, cabinet maker... Until they build robots to replace, humans needed.

All blue collar tradesmen will be needed and since Dems want to send all kids to college instead of trades, they will be very lucrative occupations. Auto companies make it difficult for small shops to work on new cars but when the $'s are there it will be worth the investment for small garages. Car dealers are pond scum. Always seek out an independent mechanic. NEVER take your car to a dealer. My dealer offers free oil changes. I'll pay for my own, they are not touching my autos.

Since my husband's on line handle is Dumbplumber....and having been in the plumbing/water/well business for over 30 years...I vote plumbers will never be outsourced. He worked 10 hours today in the icy cold fixing problems, broken pipes. Trouble shooting low water pressure issues, plugged up haze filters. Tomorrow will be pulling a pump from a 120 ft well, replacing the old pump,new pipe, rewiring and putting in new controller, check valves, torque arrestor and electronic parts, calibrating the system. Day after tomorrow the same work schedule and another pump on Saturday. In the ice. In the snow. Up muddy hills and long dirt driveways. By hand and with the hydraulic boom.

Let's see you make a robot that can do THAT! Dare you.

Many jobs may still exist, but those doing said jobs will no longer be Americans.

Robot repair is a growing field. Also sales of robots has a good long term trend line.

Robot assassin. It's like with zombies - you can kill without regret or guilt, but robots have owners so you have to be stealthy. Professionals will be needed - demand will be strong.
