Politicians are telling us we have no need to worry about driverless cars, robots and algorithms taking jobs away from us. Most of us know when politicians start telling us not to worry, it is time for us to be concerned.
Jobs create taxes to pay for our social security system. Without jobs there will be no health care, unemployment benefits, free education or family allowance.
Truck drivers are losing their jobs working in the mines and the mine owners say we can drop the price of iron ore, and we can be more competitive globally if we are not paying truck drivers. The truck drivers that were earning over three thousand dollars a week were paying many thousands of dollars in tax, which was paying for our hospitals, schools, and for our unemployment benefits.
Our politicians are telling us not to worry, new technology will provide people with new jobs. When they are asked what new jobs will be created, they say we don’t know.
How many jobs are we going to lose because of Algorithms?
How many drivers will lose their jobs when driverless cars come on the market?
Drivers of cars, trucks, taxis, delivery vans, and trains will all lose their jobs.
I want to know before hand what these new jobs will be before we give up our drivings jobs I have no resin to trust what a politician tells me do you?
Would you like to help find out how many jobs we have lost because of technology?
Please help us by adding to this list.
I can’t think of one permanent job that has been created that is linked to robot’s or algorithms.
Will you please help compile a list of jobs that have been created by robot’s and algorithms?
I would like you to help by adding to the above list of permanent jobs that have been lost because businesses have sacked people, and replaced them with expensive machinery, robots or computers, or a combination of these devices.
Our politicians keep telling us there are far more people in jobs now than ever before, but they neglect to tell us there are far more people in Australia now compared to thirty years ago.
Our politicians are saying all people who are professional drivers will lose their jobs to driverless vehicles and we should not worry because technology will replace the jobs that our professional drivers are going to lose. There is no guarantee these new jobs will be created.
I say put the driverless car, bus and train technology back on the shelf, allowing people to keep their current jobs, and give all the new jobs that our politicians are telling us technology is going to create, to people who are unemployed and underemployed.
