Parking lot attendants in Fargo, N.D., are finding out what most cities have already learned. The world doesn’t need parking lot attendants anymore.
“It’s a great job,” Al Schraw tells Forum Communications. He got his latest gig after losing his last one to automation.
Now his current parking lot is going to become a high-rise tower with a fully automated parking garage. No 84-year-olds who worked the job to help ease the loneliness of losing his wife a few years ago required.
The company that supplies parking lot attendants in Fargo says when the complex goes up, it’ll have just one parking lot attendant left in the city.
