If this CNBC story is indicative of our future economy, video game playing NEETs' job prospects may soon be soaring!

From CNBC, "Florida county to battle mosquitoes through federal drone program":
It's been an uncharacteristically busy week for Eric Jackson, a public information officer at the Lee County Mosquito Control District in southwestern Florida.

U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao on Wednesday afternoon named Lee County's mosquito control outfit one of only 10 state, local and tribal government entities to be selected for the Federal Aviation Administration's Unmanned Aircraft Systems Integration Pilot Program.

That means Lee County's mosquito control operations will be able to incorporate drone technology under more relaxed standards than they would otherwise be required to adhere to under current law.

It also means an unlikely spotlight has been shined on the county's pest control efforts.

"I'm hoping after today it'll quiet down. We're getting a lot of media requests, but it's also I'm getting inundated with drone operators that want jobs," Jackson says. "I'm thinking, 'Man, this really made it around the country.'"
Drone operation of all type could be the perfect job for gamers.

Historically, if you wanted to be a drone pilot you had to kill people for Washington D.C.

In the future, there could be millions of productive jobs piloting drones in the private sector.
