Default 10 states where robots are more likely to steal human jobs

https://www.thisisinsider.com/robots...-asset-2018-10

Quote:
Because of the rate at which technology is progressing, automation is a trend that will impact various sectors of economic life this century. In fact, automation is already creating anxiety as to how our economy will be structured going forward.
Quote:
According to The Guardian, 38% of U.S. jobs could be lost to automation in the next 15 years. The Janesville Gazette reports that a 2017 Pew Poll found that 72% of adults said they were worried about a future where robots and computers can perform human jobs.
Quote:
Smart Asset, a financial technology company that provides online advice about personal finance decisions, recently released a study which calculated which states have jobs that are most vulnerable to automation.
Quote:
Smart Asset's methodology consisted of looking at employment data across all 50 states and Washington, D.C. and analyzing them from the two angles. First, they looked at total worker occupation data based on Bureau of Labor Statistics from 2017. Second, they looked at research studies done by Oxford University, namely "The Future of Employment: How susceptible are jobs to computerization?" by Carl B. Frey and Michael A. Osborne, and analyzed the percent chance a specific occupation will be automated in a decade or two. MORE ON HOW THE CALCULATIONS WERE DONE
Quote:
the top 10 states with jobs most vulnerable to automation, three came from the Great Plains and six came from the South.
Quote:
10. Alabama — Smart Asset estimates just under 55% of jobs in Alabama could be automated, including motor vehicle assembly plants. Mercedes-Benz, Honda, and Toyota all have plants in the Cotton State.

Quote:
9. Texas — Texas has the second most workers in the country, according to Smart Asset, and that includes fast-food workers. Some McDonald's franchises have already experimented with self-ordering kiosks.
Quote:
8. Florida — Smart Asset estimates that 4.6 million of the roughly 8.4 million jobs in Florida face automation threats. These include retail salespeople, who may not be needed if self-checkout machines multiply.
Quote:
7. Mississippi — Research finds that Mississippi has large numbers of hand laborers, which includes delivery workers and box-factory sorters. These occupations are directly threatened by machines replacing humans, according to the report.
South Carolina
Montana
Louisiana
Quote:
3. Wyoming — 56.4% of jobs in Wyoming are at risk of automation, with construction equipment operators and truck drivers among the most threatened, with 8,900 jobs endangered between the two.
South Dakota
Quote:
1. Nevada — With retail and gaming among the top industries in this state, SmartAsset estimates nearly three in five jobs (766,100 out of 1,295,000) in Nevada are at risk of automation.
Back east they may make you accept auto check ot but here people aren't crazy about it.
manufacturing job losses suck though.

Robots aren't stealing human jobs. Humans are being replaced by machines. Machines that don't go on strike for a minimum wage. Don't demand longer lunch breaks and vacation time. And produce double the amount of widgets in the same time.

The loom has stolen the job of the weavers.
The car as stolen the job of the horse and buggy.
The printing press stole the job of the transcribers.
The printer has stolen the job of the printing press.
Switch board operators had their jobs stolen by the computerized switch.
The lawn mower stole the job of the guy with the scythe.
The tractor stole the job of the guy with the donkey and plow.

I mean let's just get rid of EVERY SINGLE technological advancement ever made and go back to the stone age.

Or we adapt, improve, find things to do, and move on.

BINGO!

This demonstrates the failings of the so-called "thinking" of the left. The want to force companies to pay higher wages and then get all bent out of shape when companies find alternative ways of producing their products.

You are all wrong.

Robots do not steal jobs nor do they remove human workers on layoffs. They make humans more productive and their efforts more reliable.

150 years ago, the Industrial Revolution was beginning. Instead of a craftsman sending a week to carfve12 feet of crown molding, a machine could produce that in mere minutes. Now two or three guys could produce hundreds of feet of fine carvings a day with less effort and better outcomes.

From Shingles to flooring to fixtures, everything became not only cheaper but more plentiful And more people could afford a house.

It was the invention of the middle class.

Would one rather split eight cords of firewood to heat that house thru the sinter or just set a thermostat and read the evening news via Edison's miracle. All because of the automated thermostat that kept the fires going comfortably throughout the home.

Meanwhile his wife could sit with him whilst the washer and dryer made their clothes clean. Let us presume, for the sake of my argument, that is a good thing,,,;no?

In that 150 years the population of our nation had increase more than five fold. Machines from drill presses to robot welders have replaced handworkers. How many new jobs have been created to employ the growth of humanity? So many, our wives now also go to work.

Robots make the next step possible. Aside from being higher technology, they are no different than the automatic thermostat or the machine that produces wood carving in fine oak lumber

It takes a complete and total understanding of economics to believe that when jobs are being lost to machines that do it better and cheaper, and more are going elsewhere where wages are lower, that the answer is to increase the minimum wage.

Job security, learn to repair robots or program them.
I'm good to go until I retire because AI is far from being able to do my job. It will get there eventually, but I'll be retired by then.
