A robot may take a specilist to build and program, but it can take five or more jobs out of the hands of people that need to enter the workforce. And you and I both know that union wages may be negotiated, but the wages being earned by others will be used in the negotiations. Food prices will rise, as will the cost of delivering goods, stocking goods, and selling those goods. I worked minimum wage jobs while I was in college. I worked construction, landscaping, and finally a job as a night clerk at a convenience store. If anything it convinced me to stay in school, work my way up the ladder and try to achieve something greater. Hate to think where I would have been if I had become complacent in those jobs or entitled to more than my worth.
