Unskilled sorry for you

The more robots we have the less need for humans. I don't mind that.

How about a quota?
1 child per person.
2 if you're married.

Apple investing > 10 B in robotics.
How many high schools have been to that kids learn robotics / control / logic / programming.

In which case we'll need a new system to distribute wealth because there will not be enough work for everyone. Regardless of skill. this is some Wall-E ass shit!

wealth is distributed by normal commerce.

there is a reason why Drake, Jordan, Gates and Oprah are millionaires

did you worry about the bank clerks who got replaced by ATMs,
or the telephone operaters by automatic routing?

The problem with this is that not everyone can be a skilled labourer. There's a finite amount of doctors, nurses, lawyers, investment bankers and engineers that an economy can hold, and by taking out unskilled labour you're creating a permanent underclass of people. Who's going to take care of them? How are they going to participate in the economy?

Seems like they're just making more long-term problems with these money-saving schemes.

Not everyone can be those professions that's why you need to build just of the future and not rely on those of the past.
Why does anyone have to be unskilled?

you actually believe that?

that is the same trend of thought, racist whites had about india, china, and blacks on a whole. we have a glut of unskilled people because of education system is outdated, society loves slackers and increased facism.

society loves slackers, because politicians get to move people to blame other people for their failures, racist whites blame enterprising blacks or mexicans, and so forth.

either way.. skilled jobs are just as affected, you dont need translators as much anymore, or librarians, i havent seen a door to door salesman in a long while. we will always have basic entry level jobs, for example not every company can have automated stacking or delivery like amazon, but we will have more jobs in the future related to the maintenance of this robots. and kids of today can easily pick up these skills.
