Cheap Robotic Labor
Why wouldn't big business want to replace people with Robots? After all, many companies like Auto Manufacturing have gone overseas because of cheap labor. Data centers moved to India because of cheap labor. Why not move it all back to the United States, if Robots are cheaper than the labor of foreign countries?
Management thinks about the "Human Resources" instead of identifying people as personnel, and developing an actual relationship that fosters mutual loyalty and respect, they work us like robots. Heck, many of us do not have real jobs, we are contrators, the next cost cut down from the job with benefits. The next chepest, forien labor. the next chepest heading our way.....Robots. Great.
No security even if you are excellent at what you do. If there is a cheaper way to do it, they will find a way. The all mighty dollar rules, people do not. It all reminds me of the twilight Zone move where the manager keeps replacing workers, saving money, until he is replaced by a robot.
