 This extends to factories and so on, manual labor is still a thing, but not in the way you may first think. The Karbon scare of the Ten Years War has left people afraid of self-repairing machines. This means a repair workforce is needed without an knowledge but the ability to do the work on automated systems. This is the manual labor of tomorrow, you take your omni to work and load it up with the needed programming when you start. Then you take your omni with you to the site and plug it in, and the device instructs you on the repairs needed on the automated system. The clockwork of tomorrow isn't any different than our own, just cast in a new form. This extends to factories and so on, manual labor is still a thing, but not in the way you may first think.

 +The Earth is ruined, and only a small amount of humanity remain on a planet all but abandoned by humanity. Space is the new frontier and the global corps push farther and farther out with their starships each year. IsoJump technology allows fast travel between stars, taking only a week or two for each parsec. The longest IsoJump commited so far has been 9 parsecs in four weeks. During an IsoJump, the ship is out of normal time and space. The people carried are unaware any time (more than a moment) has passed. The Athena is the forerunner of starship design, capable of doing 100 parsecs of IsoJumps before it needs engine refit, though that would take 2.5 years of travel time, with travel by the crew seeming like 6 months in the end.
  
 +----
 +Regardless of IsoJump and amazing starship technology, humanity has yet to find another Earth. Some planets have colonies started, but mostly people live on stations in orbit of worlds in known star systems. The stations are constructed from the resources found in those systems, and life is maintained by a complex engineered ecosystem. Humanity truly is adrift in the stars, supported by their own technology only.
