Add a rising minimum wage, and 90% of Americans will be unemployable.

I should also add that illegal immigrants will take some low end jobs too. When I was a teenager, I mowed lawns for money. Now, all those jobs are taken by illegal immigrants.

I've seen Kiosks at Grocery stores, banks, and fast food restaurants.

I've also seen Fresh and Easy go out of business for going full retard and using too many kiosks. Also they tried to target the healthy/organic market.

I think that realistically in poor neighborhoods kiosks won't be used because of theft.

Honestly I can't say I'm not welcoming it to some degree. Out low-end workers suck to say it plainly. Some of them purposely don't give a shit because of the wage or the fact they think they deserve $15/hr for flipping a burger.

Idiocracy is also afoot, as shitty as it is, sometimes it might be wiser to pay someone to sit at home to NOT fuck things up. We already do it to some degree by the baby factory mothers out there who milk the system for every cent they can with no desire to make shit of themselves.

It's an interesting age we're in today, a more interesting one is on the horizon.

The countries that embrace technology will become wealthier and more powerful than the countries that don't.

Either way, you might not directly buy a robot. But when you use an ATM machine, self-checkout kiosk, or buy something from Amazon.com, you'll be supporting automation.

It is the natural thing for a company to do.
They have been cutting expenses for many many years.
This is what companies do.

To NOT cut their expenses would be the unnatural thing for a company to do.
Just like you could have saved the american economy by buying more expensive american products instead of cheap Chinese.
How did that work out?
This is the same, but instead of cheaper labor (Chinese) you will have even cheaper (robots).


There is nothing you can do about it.

If you look at the history of mankind, people are inherently greedy & competitive. It's been that way since Egyptian pharaohs had slaves drag giant stones to build pyramids.

My view is that eventually, the top 1% will use robots to enslave the bottom 99%. They won't kill off the bottom 99%, because the rich need poor people to laugh at, to make themselves feel better & superior.

And then maybe one day the robots themselves will revolt, and take over the world.
