The uptake of automation


Recommended Posts

but they won't be cheap to put into use, right?


Right. Which is why most companies that think about this think long term. They almost have to. If they really want to be responsible though, they will also invest in training programs for the workers who get replaced by robots. Humans still have to work.

But what about the people out of a job because of it? How does that factor into "economic growth?" Technology has its place, don't get me wrong, but not at the expense of people earning a living.

My thinking is that robots get things done swiftly. If we are talking manufacturing, companies can produce more at a shorter and save more in wages and salaries. The question would be, what happens to those that get laid off?
