It's about more and more of our skills becoming obsolete. It is inevitable that (anorganic) non-humans will at some point be better than us in everything
We're not there yet and it is debatable how long it will take before we get there but again: it is inevitable that we will get there. That is, unless you believe (and can prove) that humans will always be better than anything in something. The fact of the matter is that the human body is a general purpose platform that has evolved for survival in an earthlike environment, which makes it highly unlikely to (permanently) excel at specific things. Don't get me wrong, the human body is a marvel and I like a lot of things about my specific body, but to consider it the epitome of what the universe can create would be nothing but arrogance.
The above is why your argument needs additional support that in this specific instance the human skills that will not have been superseded by those of non-humans (both technically and economically) are sufficiently untapped to (economically!) offset the skills that have been or will shortly be superseded.
For the Luddites, that support is provided trivially. The entire skillset derived from intelligence, cognition and dexterity was still highly untapped at that point.
Humans have been trumped in dexterity (and numerical processing for that matter) for a long time now, but in tasks where cognition is highly necessary for the dexterity to be useful we still have a leg up. The (specialized) dexterity and strength of robots has relied on very simple specialized sensing and strict constraints to function. Only now are we getting to a place where powerful (visual) cognition is getting close to being precise enough to coordinate robot dexterity in complex ways. There is a huge difference between knowing that the hole for the screw is going to be at exactly x,y,z (or using lasers to detect whether there is a hole at that location) and just looking at the thing and recognizing the hole, knowing where it is and how to move the arm to put the screw in the hole. In essence, I'm talking about 'hand' 'eye' coordination.
This is very relevant in the self-driving cars area. The hard part about driving is not (really) knowing what decisions to make, given certain circumstances. The hard part is situational awareness, specifically by looking at the environment, knowing what is what and how it will behave.
So forget about the AI-bit for a few years (although it is very relevant in this discussion). In the short term we're about to be surpassed in the area of 'hand'-'eye'-coordination. And that is not a small thing.
