Thanks for this post. I was expecting some mention of Basic Income. Also the counter part to this:
They are all too willing to blame immigrants for low wages and poor job opportunites — cloaking their suggestive rhetoric with slogans that “emphasise place and belonging”
would be to blame the robots for low wages. The sooner we shift focus to automation and demand an automation dividend the better. #TaxtheRobots!
That brings us to the real identity issue, people still identify with their job. So saying that the job is overrated can fall on deaf ears. Share this cartoon far and wide: http://recycledcomics.manawaker.com/comic/robots
All this time we could have been friends.
