When automation replaced (some) manual labor there was employee flight to so-called white collar jobs (of which many were, and still are of dubious value). Now that the previously exclusive domain of humans, "thinking" (even if limited) is being performed by machines, there's nowhere left to go for us sentient meatbags mostly made of water. Unless people 'create their own jobs', and not many have the ability to do that.
