My family has been hearing me say this for years… automation is going to take a lot of jobs away from humans.
Andrew Yang, who was running for President of the United States, talked about this last year as he made his run for office. Back in 2010, I remember telling my wife that Automation was the future and it would change the landscape of our lives. Every new piece of Automation takes away 100 jobs and only uses about 5 jobs to maintain it. You will always need an engineer, programmer, and hardware people to make automation but you will not need the low end workers.
Watch this video and you will see exactly where the future is going.
