Recently also the U.S. mainstream media has picked up the topic of automation in the future; in particular on two main activities of U.S. citizens: earning a living and getting there to do so.
According to Oxford University¹ jobs like: retail and sales workers, cashiers, office clerks and food handlers are most likely to be in front of the line for the checkout. Looking the at activity of research in driverless cars, I wonder how many extra job positions will be on the front line.
Contemplating this, is it not the time for governments and organizations to start zooming in on its working class subjects?
Will the U.S. have adapted by the time the robots are there? Or will they let the free market do the talking when the automation revolution starts peaking?
