Actually, the robots will eliminate jobs, just as the PC did, but they be will lower-skilled ones. And the robots will also create new jobs or enlarge existing ones, but they will be jobs that require more skills.I watched a Rethink robot being tested at the Nypro plastics factory in Clinton, Mass. A single worker was operating a big molding machine that occasionally spewed out too many widgets, which forced the system to overload. The robot was brought in to handle overflow, while the same single worker still operated the machine. “We want the robot to be the extension of the worker, not the replacement of the worker,” said Michael McGee, Nypro’s director of technology.
This is the march of progress. It eliminates bad jobs, empowers good jobs, but always demands more skill and creativity and always enables fewer people to do more things. We went through the same megashift when our agricultural economy was replaced by the industrial economy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Therefore, what this election should be about is how we spawn thousands of Rethinks that create new industries, new jobs and productivity tools. Alas, it isn’t. So I'm just grateful these folks here in Boston didn't get the word.
The author develops his argument by using an educational tone that is understandable to his audience. He incorporates many different people’s opinions into his essay. This makes his argument stronger because he doesn’t only present his views; therefore the article is less likely to seem biased and more credible. He also provides many examples to explain what is happening in this situation. For example:
“We went through the same megashift when our agricultural economy was replaced by the industrial economy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.”
