That cute little thing would be so popular in my neighborhood. People would be scooping them up for the contents inside and resale of the robot on ebay later.

Those employees are stockers and will soon be replaced. Ironically, none of them seem to be “running around” on the cash registers where they’re actually needed. Oh, because we now have self checkout lines too.

Wal-Mart is embracing the future of automation and AI.

There may be many skilled jobs but no where near enough jobs for all the workers to do them. Plus there are some people who are just not smart enough to do more then basic jobs.

Look around you. Things need to be done everywhere. Pavements, parks built and maintained, street tramways, urban underground metros, etc. I could get everyone fully employed.

After all, they have the same skill sets illegals do.
