As low- and semi-skilled manual jobs disappear, working-class men are getting hammered - and so is their masculinity. "Manual labour has been a key source of identity, pride, self-esteem and power for working-class men," says a recent British study, which set out to probe a fascinating question: What makes these men so unemployable?

The conventional answer is that their education levels are too low and their skills are too poor. But the more accurate answer is that they're psychologically mismatched to the seismic shifts in our economy. The new economy (over the long term) is creating tons of service jobs in retail, customer support, and personal care. The trouble is that these jobs require temperamental attributes that are stereotypically feminine - things like patience, a pleasant demeanour, deference to the customer and the ability to empathize and connect. Another way to put it is that these jobs require emotional labour, not manual labour. And women, even unskilled women, are much better at emotional labour than men are.

"Your Tinder Super Like wants to grab drinks after work on Tuesday. Sounds like a great problem to have right? Wrong! You have a huge meeting that requires you to wear a suit and tie. You also have your everyday carry (EDC) essentials which an up and coming gentleman such as yourself cannot leave home without. So how do you carry your Burt's Bees lip balm, travel size cologne spray bottle, Kleen water bottle, comb, Listerine breathe strips, sunglasses, exploding Note 7, exploding Note 7 bomb proof pouch, eye drops, ABA LOVE Apothecary Grooming Oil ...? You get our drift.
Listen the last thing you want to do is show up looking great with a jansport backpack, unless you are in between periods. If you do, your TindeRoni will for sure block you before chugging that glass of wine. "
