That might be the case for high-end hotels with 1,000s of rooms, but you're not going to see that at the majority of hotels, which are not high-end and don't have 1,000s of rooms.

Typical Liberal mantra.

Well, as in that libs actually care about individuals, yes.

When was the last time you saw a hotel housekeeping staff that was more than about 10% male?

Automation has replaced people for a long time. The first I remember was in the 1980s when working at a major water utility. We brought in an automated hand-held meter reading system, which replaced the IBM cards having to be pencil marked in bubbles. The workers went from reading 200 meters a day to over 400, the result was fewer needed. Being union, there was a long and heated "meet and confer" process, with most layoffs avoided due to early retirement packages. Now the same place uses meters that transmit the readings over the airwaves, and even fewer are needed. When it comes to robotics in customer service, people tend to be fascinated and enjoy it. Many even find the canned chatter of the hotel, store or restaurant staff to be annoying, and welcome the robots. For evidence, look at the long lines at the supermarket self-check lanes even when there are no lines at the checker-staffed lanes.
