The tech was well ahead of any competitors in america and so it is likely the employees of amazon are those displaced in other warehouses that cannot compete.

Precisely, but my point about how the robots represent an efficiency increase is that the number hired by Amazon probably only represents a fraction of the total number who were displaced elsewhere.
