Here’s what is real scary, the day that only one person in a household will be able to work a full-time job. Technology is making the number of jobs needed less and less with each passing year, so the argument will be, why should their be two wage earners in a house when there are so many others who can’t even get one job?
Who can blame a company for going tech? With all the goodies and regulations like Onomacare, it's better to use machines. A machine will work non stop, never demand extra days off, never demand longer vacations, never demand more money, and never demand better health care.
Machines will work and be happy. People won't.
I understand completely why robotics have become so popular. A business today would be crazy not to let machines do the work that people won't do without complaining.
Unless employees start to show some gratitude for the jobs they're given, I see robotics being in high demand. They're better - They're easier. They're smarter. They're cheaper. They're easier to get along with.
