There won;t be one "Robot Repairman" created for each job lost to automation, not to mention it's a highly technical skill, so there will be MASSIVE unemployment as the automation becomes more widespread. And with college education costs sky-rocketing and beyond the reach of most, not to mention the total retraining of older workers who still need a source of income, this is nothing but a disaster in the making.

The "Star Trek" dystopia where "people only work if they want to and can do what ever they want to pursue" is NOWHERE near on the horizon....

I cannot draw a cart, nor eat dried oats; If it be man's work I will do it.
