There is 1 comment on We’re Paying for Robots to Take Our Jobs. Seriously.

  1. No mention about how minimum wage laws impacting robot use? There was a big story in New York about how those laws drove many hand car wash stations to automation, They laid off hundreds of workers as result. Bottom line you can’t force business to pay say $15 per hour when their workers produce less profit per hour than that.
