You skilled and unskilled laborers had best be pushing your unions to start retraining you now. You can and will be replaced by machines in the not to distant future.

Whats the problem? We are not going to run out of food stamps, unemployment benefits and the rest of the freebies for three more years. Don't sweat it.

While I'm not a skilled/unskilled laborer, and in my line of work, not likely to be replaced by a robot before I reach retirement age. I'm just trying to help out the union brothers.

Machines don't need welfare or food stamps or unemployment benefits. Or HR departments, or health insurance, or dental coverage or 401K matching funds. If they break, they either get repaired or replaced. And they don't have lawyers. Yet.

If the worst happens, and they lose their jobs, it merely means that the thugs who financed the very people who are responsible for their plight, will not have the money to finance more of the same. That's a good thing, isn't it?

Very probably correct. Machines who don't demand wages also do not pay taxes.

And I suppose you have the testimonials of many broken little bois to prove it. What a disgusting POS!
