[QUOTE=southparkcpa;4250869]Agreed..this is a serious problem however An associate of mine owns a chain of movie theaters and we discussed how ONE person can now digitally monitor 6 movies at once.
He then adroitly pointed out..."we need someone to pay for the tickets".
It is why the top 10 percent will get richer. They have a skill someone wants to buy.[/QUOTE]
Robotic technology is not he problem its the solution. We cant compete in labor intensive manufacturing. The world today is simply too small to compete with manufacturing countries like China that use a form of slave labor to work the factories. In America the only hope is to compete in highly skilled manufacturing areas. Robotics takes labor cost out of the process somewhat and evens the playing field. It's worth noting that the programming and operation of robotic technologies requires highly skilled labor. That is a high paying field in manufacturing.
The main trouble in our economy is with unskilled labor. People without college degrees used to get a job at a factory and make a respectable living.
