and I'll say it again - technology INCREASES jobs, never decreases it - over the long term.
If robots don't cause total human working hours to decline, then what the fuck good are they?
In this instance it's not about reducing human working hours, it's about increasing productivity. Factories might increase productivity exponentially with robots and yet still require about the same number of staff either working around the edges where robots aren't capable or managing the robots themselves. But the point is that you're producing much more with about the same labour cost.
