Good point Tom.
Job automation has been happening for the last few hundred years though. Think agriculture or manufacturing. While it has brought issues — pollution and sustainability related—we are all reaping the benefits such as stocked supermarkets, etc. The end of work (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_End_of_Work) will become an issue at one point though and then governments and tax systems will have to adapt. Unconditional basic income is one of the solutions.
