Unions: the Robots are killing them

Yesterday I blogged about the demise of unskilled and boring work to robots and looked at why we should embrace this.

Then late last night I was sent a link to a video clip via the tipline that shows how the new?Silver Ferns Farms chain works, where they have put in robotics at the Finegand Plant – apparently with the support of?the unions – because it is difficult to fill these repetitive roles in?outlying parts of NZ eg Balclutha. It frees the skilled staff to do?more interesting work.

So good to see the unions getting with the programme.

Not sure if this is the actual plant or just an example. But it interesting in any case.

The?comment stream is hilarious especially the alien?invasion scenario and how the machine could be used on pedos and criminals.
