An OLD -OLD story.
There are a lot of jobs which are quite mechanistic and sooo boring. I believe people should not do such. It good that robots will take them. Anyhow, there are a lot of interesting, creative and highly appreciated jobs left for people. For example, with children or the art of planting
If you think a machine can't plant better or more efficient than a human your kidding yourself and jobs with children already pay horribly what do you think happends when the McDonald's worker floods into that industry
the truth of the matter is we are all to blame. republican and dem alike. we had bush help out the banks AFTER they became skittish to invest in people. so now venture capitalism can be done at an insanely cheap rate and it is pumping billions into r&d budgets leading to great leaps in technology that would have progressed much slower under normal circumstances. and with obamacare's employer mandate wavers about to expire and the fair wage laws going from 10 to 15 dollars in areas like Seattle you have made the price point for automating services for what used to be low wage workers far more reasonable. there will be jobs in the future just a lot less of them . and they will be primarily in stem fields (computers, bioengineering) and certain manual labor fields like working oil rigs or truck driving (until google completes the self driving car/truck)what we should be talking about is how we are going to deal with 60% unemployment. what will countrys like china do when the factorys close and the natives become restless. how does the world NOT end up going to war because it becomes the only choice for places like china , who if they cant give their population a job will probably blame us and Europe and then put a gun in their hands and say get'em. its only 10-15 years away and no one seems to notice or care
Will conservatives deport these robots as well. This is the new face of unethical capitalism that conservatives love free labor. Conservatives talk about anti communism yet they love to use the sweat shops in those countries to turn a bigger profit selling cheaply made junk at a premium. No more sweat shops its time to go from $0.10 an hour to $0 an hour. This is what s killing our economy never ending quest to increase a bottom line by cutting jobs all the while destroying our environment which in turn destroys our health. Stupidity, Hate, Bigotry, Denying, Incoherent ranting, Selfishness and Greed is the new so called patriotic way according to Conservatives. Screw everyone else as long as I get my way.
Plus there won't be a need for the goods that these robots produce, because if they take over most of the human jobs – no one will be buying anything b/c they will have no money. If there's no one to buy a product.... then there's no need to produce it and everyone goes under.
cheap electronics and the era of program controllers has already displaced millions of factory workers...at least you don't have to tip the robot waitress
Democrats and Republicans took them to China, Korea and India.
There will be no jobs available for regular citizens in the US.
How so have Demos exported jobs. Anti union anti fair wage corporations moved jobs overseas and those corporations have Republican, Libertarian, Tea Party in their pockets. Dens are not against fair wages or unions. Remember Romney said he loves to fire people.
Possibly so but they also can keep millions from being injured while working in factories and also keep the costs down on a lot of items for consumers. The robots are faster producers but they can't do all jobs. People will never go away, so the human jobs will always outweigh the robots is exactly how I see it.
