Race To The Bottom, Last Stop
My wife and I were watching a very interesting (and troubling) piece on Sixty Minutes last night about automation in the workplace. Experts say rapidly advancing technology is one of the reasons we've had such a hard time recovering employment-wise from this last recession...corporations are replacing laid off workers with machines. My question is what kind of society will we have in the future when humans have to compete with robots who never get tired and need no benefits? Will it still be a capitalist system or something else?
