Men have been leaving the labor force for 100 years, never got past agriculture

This chart shows that men have been leaving the economy for over 100 years. This suggests that the disappearance of agriculture is leaving some men out of the economy. We should consider the fact that some men were stupid but very strong, and therefore they used to be valuable. But most of the jobs that reward “stupid but strong” have disappeared. These men have been permanently left behind.
