That our world is becoming more and more automated is a reality that cannot be denied. As companies seek to make themselves more competitive, the inevitability of a fully automated workforce becomes more certain with each passing year.
An automated production line can be run twenty-four hours a day. Machines do not agitate for better working conditions – nor do they demand a higher wage.
Our generation is very close to witnessing an economy where all traditional blue-collar jobs (and many white-collar jobs) will be eliminated by the use of new technology, automation, artificial intelligence, and robotic workers.
