        It need not be "immune" because serious techies can work on anything from a jet fighter to lawnmower. Repairs could be automated but are unlikely to be so as rapidly as production. Until robots are a form and fit replacement for human techs along with their robotic advantages (which will be considerable) no worries on the Tech Priest front, especially when it comes to working with mixed poorly documented legacy systems too expensive to replace.

        A career need only last until retirement. Smart people will be fine. We always are.

        Easiest choice. Modular components. Build expansion units in a core skeleton system.

        Robot has damaged leg, detach, attach new leg.
        Robot has yanked wire in sub-module, pop out component block like extraction of a battery pack or a circuit breaker box.

        Now this sounds ideal as you would basically have entire disassembled robots ready for assembly as spare part boxes. If the defective parts are salvageable, they could be sent off to a robotic Rebuild Line. This would be used for components thar are cheaper to rewire and resolder that just disassemble then remelt.

      Yeah robots replaces 3-10 humans and they only need one human or two to maintain. At least that is how much companies will be willing to pay to keep the profit going up

      That's a good thing. All humans working in warehouses and factories should be replaced.

      Alright, but where will they go, when companies are already trying to keep the number of workers as low as possible?

          lets say before automation you have 10 jobs where 5 where eletricians, now with automation you have only 5 jobs, the eletricians ones. where the 5 people will work? dont you get it?
          even if you say eletricians jobs will increase its never to the same amount of jobs before automation, otherwise people would not need automation at all (why automate if the number of people working will be the same or more?)

          automation will decrease the amount of jobs and increase competition with the jobs that survive, will be worse for everyone

            The classic capitalist answer is that the economy will grow and these lost jobs will be replaced by workers who will manage a greater amount of robots.
            The problem is that this assumes that consumption of products will also rise accordingly. There is only so much bread you can eat before you're full. And so on for all other products.
            Because of this, companies will not generally speaking increase production for no reason, but will seek investments into their capital to improve efficiency at current demand levels. Which means over time, the amount of labor-time required for x commodity to be produced will decrease, thus less need for wage laborers, but at the same level of consumption.

            Has this ever happened? Have we not just outsourced a huge chunk of our labor to foreign countries, boosting their economies while ours steadily declines for the majority of people? Outside of assembly lines and some software what have we truly automated in the US?

            Automation doesn't replace jobs, it transforms the needs of the business. For instance, a fabrication shop at one point might have needed a small army of material handlers to move material. Then, with the introduction of hydraulic lifts (forklift trucks), the need for material handling was filled a handful of forklift operators. Some of the material handlers get their get their forklift cert and stay on as operators while some get jobs elsewhere as operators, some become salesmen for the new technology, calling on their experience to help appeal to business owners, some more mechanically minded become repairmen for the new technology. So even though a bunch of material handlers were laid off, all of them found employment in short order, in a field that is very closely related to their accumulated experience. This is a simple example, but it demonstrates that jobs don't simply disappear with the appearance of automation. People who insist they do don't really understand what automation is.

        You don't need an "engineer" to service combat aircraft or other highly complex systems. Robots need engineers at the factory.

        Field repair and modification is different and the parallels for that have existed since the first ironclads. It's quite interesting. A wooden ship could carry sufficient carpenters etc to repair or completely overhaul a ship or even build one (not rapidly) because wood etc were commonly available. As tech improved specialization went rapidly beyond basic smithing and foundry.

      farmers as a percentage of the population went from like 60% of the population to less than 2% in a century due to automation
      those people didnt become employed in the tractor servicing industry, they became employed in other unrelated industries
      now we have most of the population working bullshit unproductive jobs or on welfare
      most peoples jobs dont need to exist as was made evident by the pandemic lockdowns
      all this to say automation has not created more jobs than its destroyed, weve just created bullshit jobs to bridge the gap so people dont go insane

      There are a frickton of morons responding to you with meme answers because they actually have no fricking idea how money works, but there were some that responded intelligently and correctly point out that a contraction in the labor market will necessarily affect the prices of goods, because labor is a vital component in the cost of any product. There haven't been enough "real" jobs in the system for several decades, certainly longer than anyone you or anyone you know has been alive. With a resultant freeing of labor in traditionally service-related jobs, which are the majority in America, you will see a shift to jobs that either cannot be eliminated by automation, or which are at the least not currently at risk of it. As a result you will see prices fluctuate to accommodate the demand of customers as a whole.

      While many of the people responding are correctly pointing out a likelihood of infrastructural decay, it certainly doesn't illustrate the concerted effort of a future nobility per se, but the end result as such of a lack of pertinent regulation as corporatism grows more and more intertwined with politics. Politicians --and many corps-- want a stupid populace, but that is specifically to live in control. They don't want everyone to suffer, they just want to gain more power. It is no different than you wanting to get more pay for the job you are doing, just wildly more nepotistic and self-serving. If I have learned anything in finance it's that most people are indeed wildly stupid and do not bother learning the basics of anything at all, and that most complaints about the future of humanity aren't borne out of anything other than a wild frustration that their life is not as perfect as it could be and jealousy that others' is better.

Maybe they’ll sell the former wagies on colonizing mars, but when they get there its just a fricking radioactive dust bowl with no oxygen, most shit there is automated too, your role is a colonizer is the just be there, like a fricking Okie migrating towards prosperity but you wind up landing in worse fricking dustbowl, and the fricking CIA already has an interplanetary drug trade going on, so everybody just becomes junkies because its so fricking boring, and what you really just become is more organic material for fertilizer, which has value to the megacorp thats trying to terraform the planet as quickly as possible.

      This is somewhat true, and it depends a lot on the site. Senior management basically determines how good a site is or can be, and sometimes it literally comes down to one or two of those people that actually know what theyre doing. Remember, as gabe newell has said, management is not a career path, its the ability and the skill set to make people more productive and happy at work. Delegation and responsibility string pulling is not that, and thats a large part of how amazon runs, even with good managers.

      Neo-feudalism. The aristrocrat upper class will own everything and you will be a borerline slave.

      Sometimes I think curtis yarvin might be right.

      Blacklisted former amazon worker here, previous grunt.

      Managers are laptop chatroom jannies and could be replaced by AI voice. Managers take directions from AWS and lack spatial recognition skills. Future will be bigdick wagies/maintenance people chilling with bots and getting shit done while managers are all fired and replaced by chatGPT.

      Dude you have no idea. The area manager positions simultaneously have the most responsibility put on them and also are some of the least skilled people. Many, many managers are just college hire morons that dont know shit about anything. Whenever im told to write some report for whatever the frick, which at the end of the day is just garbage that goes to Sr Management and gets thrown away, i just use chatGPT for. There is a ton of performative, ideological level bullshit that you have to do. I do my best to make the wagies under me happy, but what the frick am i supposed to do? Some of its just the environment, there arent any fricking windows on the building for fricks sake. Also, we dont take shit from AWS. AWS is basically an entirely separate company, with an entirely different buisness model, structure, and profit margin.

    Amazon warehouse manager here, previous wagie,

    They have been trialing all types of shit for a long time in order to start replacing unskilled workers. Most of it barely functions, requires very robust maintenance cycles, and is very expensive.

    Robots suck at packing boxes. They just do, shit gets caught in conveyors, rollers, belts, pressing machines, bubble wrap is a nightmare and so is plastic dunnage,the machines that amazon is trialing specifically to replace people who pack blows ass, at least corrugate boxes.

    There are other things that will probably be replaced though, but all of this leads to a much larger maintenance team, which are paid twice the hourly rate of a normal wagie, and honestly isnt that bad of a job.

    This is probably on purpose. Until recently, amazon has not really cared about turnover, but its finally getting to the point where they have burned so many people or are otherwise realizing that people dont wanna slave away at a warehouse for 10 hour shifts, that they are investing heavily in automation, To clarify, instead of paying people more money and giving them better benefits, they would rather go through the ring of fire of automation.

        The vast majority of workers in border and southern states and a large portion in other states are immigrants, primarily mexicans. In non border/southern states they are likely to be pajeets or what have you. Ive met a wild variety of immigrants, from russians to vietnamese. If you live in a state like arizona or texas and dont speak spanish you basically cant communicate with 40-60ish percent of your employees. Its wild.

        >They have been trialing all types of shit for a long time in order to start replacing unskilled workers. Most of it barely functions, requires very robust maintenance cycles, and is very expensive.
        Sounds like Google ATM
        They have a few robots trying to handle HDD swaps, they get through 10 HDDs before needing human intervention for something
        They had another robot for sorting HDDs which caught fire but it isn't stopping them from planning more.

        The shit isn't even to save heads, at best it's to save a few bucks from hiring less technical contractors and more logistics contractors

        >The shit isn't even to save heads, at best it's to save a few bucks from hiring less technical contractors and more logistics contractors

        Yeah pretty much. When you replace unskilled labor with automation you essentially just create jobs for maintenance positions, which usually demand 2-3x the salary with a more robust benefits package. Essentially, get rid of 4 workers that cost maybe 120k to the company combined, and you replace them with one that costs 100k including benefits, and then you add a large barrier to entry fee by adopting a new piece of technology. This happened with industrialization and its gonna happen again, especially when the AI thing actually starts adding productivity to the market. Those HDD swapper machines are cool as shit though.

        I work in a Best Buy warehouse and I can confirm that Amazon is complete and utter garbage. I'm making $26/hr for a very laid back and comfy job as a general heavy equipment operator. There are a lot of nearby warehouses and they're all relatively similar in pay, like I could have gone to work at a Wal-Mart warehouse a few years ago that would have given me a couple dollars over what I'm making now along with a $5k sign on bonus. I didn't do it because it would have been a significantly longer commute but that's the level of competition for (relatively) skilled labor around here.

        Amazon opened a warehouse nearby a couple years ago and was trying to start people at something like $16/hr, just completely insane relative to what similar jobs in the area are paying. Combine that with Amazon being a notoriously soulless and anti-worker company and it's not surprising that no one wants to work for them and their only option is automation.

        Yeah amazon engages in a lot of awful business practices in relation to paying wagies in order to suppress costs. Every single year they roll out a pay bump literally a couple weeks before the thanksgiving-christmas chaos period. Last year they advertised it as "this is the only site getting a pay increase like this". Every single site got it. Its way below the inflation increases too. Recently they slashed a program to make wagies into software developers because i guess theyre getting promoted too fast or something, idk.

          Our starting wage is something like $22/hr now and that's for people with absolutely no experience. All of the equipment training and certification is done on site and we are constantly hiring people who have never worked in a warehouse before to be trained on equipment.

          >I'm making $26/hr for a very laid back and comfy job as a general heavy equipment operator.
          Honestly you're underpaid. Operating heavy equipment means you're responsible and skilled and take your work seriously, which is more than I can say for 90% of homosexuals I've met in my engineering career.

          >Honestly you're underpaid.
          I mean, it's not like driving warehouse equipment is on the same tier as a big crane on a construction site or something. Still, it's way over the average pay for the area. My rent is $700 a month.

      This argument has been tried many times throughout history and it's never been true.
      Houses used to be built by hand. Now they're built with giant vehicles. The amount of employees needed is lower when vehicles are used. The employees who are fired due to not being needed will not have enough money to buy new houses. Therefore less houses will be built.
      Does that reflect reality? No. In actuality what happened is that building houses became cheaper, so more of them were built. Instead of living in tiny villages we live in vast cities and sprawling suburbs. Most of the area where I live used to be farmland; now it's all houses and businesses. Many more people are construction workers now, although the percentage of the population that works in construction may be lower.
      To succinctly explain why your argument is wrong, consider the reverse. Currently we are working with relatively simple tools. Amazon is pushing to use more advanced tools with less staff. You are arguing that this is worse. If that is the case, would it not be better to use even simpler tools than they currently are and hire more staff? Remove all the conveyer belts and replace them with people carrying boxes. Turn off all the lightbulbs and replace them with people holding candles. Instead of trucks and cargo boats, deliver packages by bicycle and canoe.
      Do you think this strategy would actually make them more successful? If not, how is it meaningfully different from stagnating their business forever without examining any new technologies?
      Technology has consequences but Luddism is meaningless. Technology leads to new ways of doing things; some better, some worse. If it was up to Ned Ludd, we wouldn't be having a conversation over the internet like this. We'd just have a bunch of textile machines with shoes stuffed in them, and that's if you or I were alive at all.

Now we have 2 employees paid $10/hr, and one robot getting paid $2/hr. Milk production is 20gal/hr, and so a milk before must be at least $30/20gal in order to break even, but now it's only gotta be $22/20gal.

    this doesn't necessarily come out in the price. the boss, who bought the robot, may want to take the cut. But classic free market economics takes care of that; Stockholders will vote you out, and competitors will take the market you're leaving behind through price gauging. Ultimately, the milk should be around $22/20gal.

    And it reduces again as another robot joins the fray making it $14/20gal. And again, as the dairy industry becomes fully automated (except maintainers) $6/20gal.

    new jobs would have to be created. Luckily, this also has a balancing factor. If things get less expensive when robots make them, profit margins get tighter. You're competing with other companies over cents, not dollars. So human industries will be incentivized for growth. long as there are /some/ human jobs, people should be in a world where they need to work only a little, to buy a lot. Generosity is also an important thing in such a world; what would cost a lot to give a homeless man now costs a little, because robots have taken up the labor costs instead of you.

    With all that said, we don't live in a free market. Monopolies and government intrusion where there should be none, and too little government intrusion in the few areas where there should be some, all work together to stop this. But I at least think we should not blame the robots, for ultimately bringing us one step closer to a utopia where everything is free, and we can stop worrying about work and get down to the important stuff.

          Buddy, industrial robots have been a thing for over 50 years reliably. If you're talking about general use anthropomorphic robots, we'll likely not for over a decade still, but the physical technology is getting close, and the general software to run it is likely already here.

          Already robots are getting to human levels of object recognition and collision avoidance. The bigger thing is I think it's still 15 years or so until it'll be economically viable for many businesses to purchase them. Hiring Mexicans will still be cheaper for awhile. But in 15 years the baby bust is going to be hitting g the whole developed world really hard, so it might light a fire under their asses for mass adoption.

          Everyone always over estimates new technology in the short term but underestimates it's effects in the long term.

        >I can't imagine how boring life would be without working
        If this isn't bait then that's honestly pretty sad. Get some fricking hobbies.
        My dad was saying he wasn't sure what he was going to do post retirement, but now he's the happiest I've seen him in years. Loves hiking, cycling, fly fishing, and archery.

        A problem lies when a soulless asocial NEET like me has no funding outside of being allowed to live at parents' house with access to food and internet, and have no hobbies outside of internet consumption. Actually in the past 10 years I worked for 3 years but stashed most of it in IRA/stocks so I''m back to hoarding the shit out of the savings bank account I have.
        For a portion of my life, sleep schedule wasn't a thing, and the sun meant nothing. This doesn't align as well when parents need me to do random things.
        With a lack of direction and purpose, sometimes sleepyness can strike at a random time.
        I think it would make sense to have everyone including myself to work at least 2 days a week until literally everything can be fully automated. Not everyone has the capability to make the best use of 24/7 free time.
        >but now he's the happiest I've seen him in years. Loves hiking, cycling, fly fishing, and archery.
        That is based.
        But imagine never-worked-in-his-life NEET cucking himself by not having things like a bicycle, a fishing rod, or a bow out of fear of spending whatever money he has. (I actually do have a bicycle.)

    Our economy is controlled by the government with fake money. Most work that people do is complete bullshit, it's all "welfare with extra steps." People don't create anything of value and the people who DO create value likely stand on a fine line between being legal/illegal. In the future, as automation becomes more and more prevalent, I'm sure you're going to see many more people doing bullshit government work. Getting paid to walk around looking at things, making phone calls, and filling out bullshit forms.

        Have you tested whether your flashlight actually shows up piss? I've seen ones that don't. Test by pissing on something you're throwing out anyway, let it dry outside, and then see what it looks like under your flashlight.

      Humanoid robots are a great idea because the world is built for humans. If you have a humanoid bot, you don't need to build anything for it specifically, you can fire the human workers one minute and have bots walk in instead.
      Also, it can be used universally, a bot can assemble a car one day, make a plushie the next, then flip burgers.

      All of these benefits, however, require AGI, or close to it. With current tech, specialized bots are more sensible because they need per-job programming/training anyway

      >Won't believe it til I see it. I've been waiting for automation like this for 10 years now and it hasn't happened yet. Wagies keep fricking up my orders.

      The biggest and MOST OBVIOUS ANSWER to the Gay Robot Productivity Society Scam is this thought experiment.

      Okay, here you go...
      In the MOST LIBERAL OF CITIES, how do they treat their homeless. Next example, IN THE POOREST OF CENTRAL AMERICAN COMMIE ZONES, how good do they treat their poorest and most useless of citizens? Third example, the UTOPIA GOAL OF UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME, if it was the "bestest idea evaaaarr..." why aren't the infinitely compassionate liberals funding this to fix perpetually poor societies?

      In short, like Dorothy Gale's Magical Silver Slippers, the answer was in your hands all along.

      Liberal Cities are FILTHY DRUGGIE HELLHOLES because that was always the plan and no amount of money will divert the liberals from that plan.

      If Liberal cities treat their homeless like vermin and use them to exploit the taxpayers while the precious homeless starve... that was the primary goal all along.

      If UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME was a genuine goal to fix poverty, they would be doing it everywhere. Any liberal "solution" exists to grant government stooges more tax money, more dystopian control, and increase poverty and joblessness.

      As the proven proverb goes, "Know them by the FRUITS of their labors." Be ready to slaughter them before they can slaughter you, let no woman stay your sword hand, and stab every harlot that protects the thieves of prosperity.
