Manual laborers are pretty common because they usually require very little investments in terms of skill training.

Engineers and doctors are quite uncommon because you need to invest on their high level training and education.

Talented athletes and artists are somewhat rare because in born gifts and talents are not something that you can earn in school.

Wage payment, like everything else, is highly dependent on supply and demand.

It just depends on the job. Not all window washers are created equal, if your washing windows up the side of a skyscraper you should get paid more then the guy washing windows at an outlet mall.

Yes, anyone can do labour work, but very few people can ever get to a point where they can do the very hardest "brain work"

Yes.

A lot of people can do physical labour but not everyone can do mental work very well.

So mentally exceptional people are a rarer commodity.

However people doing physically taxing jobs should be provided with top notch equipment and any accidental injuries should he converted by the companies.

No.

In a perfect world, you should be paid based on how many people are willing to have children with you. Failure to meet a quota, and we burn you for fuel.

Doesn't matter. We'll come to the point where computers will be doing both "brain" work and physical work.

I did manual labor in my late teens and early twenties, it paid more than what I make now the problem is the job can end and you get laid off.

You can also get extra pay in the oil field (what I worked)

Per Diem, Truck Pay, Hazard Pay, etc.

Skilled labor is a rare and valued commodity in the business world. Experienced tradesmen turn the ideas of “brains” into tangible reality.

Depends on what you mean by 'labor'. Skilled labor, such as tradesmen, are incredibly valued and can make serious bank.

No! Labour people are blessed with physical conditions, while smarter people are blessed with brain facility! Each one has his thing to make the world roll!

At that point, there will be a high unemployment rate, people will start to starve, even intellectuals could feel threatened and unite with the struggling side, at some point, civil war will take place, technocrats and scientist which promoted the AI and auto-labor enforcement will get hanged and then, an international accordance will emerge in order to forbid it from ever happening again.

Any nation not obeying will get cut off from the international trade agreement, even if that means a great economic damage for all others.

That's how I predict it.

PS: If my prediction is at least a bit accurate, if that happens, humanity will face a forced regression at some point in the future and I think that industrial managers and CEO's know that, they have to win the trust and feel backed by the people from the nation, enforcing such a thing only creates anti-trust and when the people are not there, when they are abandoned, they will eventually stand up and kill you in the most horrible way you could ever imagine.

All the people behind those big companies, are like you and me, they have families, they look for the future, they feel fear like any other.

People should get paid based on the `benefit they bring to the company. If the person's contribution brings a lot of profit then their income should reflect the value they bring. That's why the government should not be deciding how much people should be paid. How can the government know what every industries' employees worth to their companies? They can't. I'd imagine that the company's board is better able to determine the value that a leader brings to the company than the US government. I'd also imagine that they are more likely to not overpay because they know the limits of what someone is worth too.

Unfortunately for those whose brains don't function on higher levels, like my own, manual labor is the best we can get. The brainwork jobs are often frowned upon by us because we know we won't ever reach a point where we can work them without suffering something.
