IN other news, 500 human jobs created to build and maintain 1 million robots to replace 1 million human jobs. Leaves 999500 in total poverty.

You couldn't make this shit up ^^

It sounds cruel but automation like this yields much higher profits AND efficiency. Machines are infinitely better suited for assembly line-type jobs, and end up being far cheaper in the long run than payroll and benefits for people. They really are a no-brainer, and it's hard to fault any corporation that moves to automated manufacturing wherever possible. Humans are sloppy, inconsistent, and subject to fatigue-related mistakes and slowdowns. Machines are none of these things. There will always be someone needed to fix and maintain the machines and the process surrounding them, though. It's part of what I do in my current job. Then there are the many processes that are unique and varied enough that automation just isn't practical. Machines will never entirely replace people, which is good for those of us who like to eat.
