Thought for the day…”I will go anywhere as long as it is forward” (David Livingstone).

More worrying news, this time from China. The official Chinese news sources are reporting that in Dongguan, a factory there is replacing its workforce of 1800 workers with a new factory which is based on robots. The new factory will employ just 200 workers, so around 1600 workers will lose their jobs to robots (that is about 90% of the factory’s workforce). And when you consider things like self check-outs in supermarkets (=lost cashier jobs), automatic check-in at airports (= lost agent jobs) and automatic check in at hotels (=lost reception jobs) then the future looks bleak. If you look at the videos of car production, then you can see how redundant that a human being can become. So if the trend continues, then what are all the displaced people going to do for work? A good question. Technological unemployment is coming faster than we realize.
