Do you think bankers make computers? Do you think bankers make the best programmers?

The rich don't do anything useful. They only concentrate on making themselves richer at the expense of everyone else.
They are parasites that will become obsolete.
Congruitism will see to that.

A couple of corrections:

Log drivers are still used in remote logging areas in Canada and the USA. Most of the log driving jobs ended in the 1970s with the introduction of logging roads in to many remote sites. However there are still a few sites that need their skills.

Lamplighters. London still has a small team of Lamplighters to light the gas lamps that have been installed over the past few decades by English Heritage.  Brest also has an a official lamplighter who lights the kerosene lamps in the shopping precinct since 2009 when the practice was reintroduced.

Rat catcher? Lamp lighter? These and many occupations have long ceased to be normal careers.

I was expecting more commonly known trades and types of work, such as train driver (there are a number of underground railways that run without any human pilots involved!).

Or watch repairmen. If you don't buy an expensive TISSOT timepiece, you might just throw away your Swatch once the glass is scratched or the wristband snaps.

Some tenacious folks are keeping old jobs alive, such as shoemakers. It takes a bit of heroism to do that. Hat off to them who do!
