The future is now

200,000 orders a day and only 4 employees. And they are for the robots.

That should make us all think.

In China, a picture of how warehouse jobs can vanish

JD.com, a Chinese e-commerce gargantuan, has built a big new Shanghai fulfillment center that can organize, pack and ship 200,000 orders a day. It employs four people all of whom service the robots.

-~-

But to get faster and more reliable, just as important is automation: From smart warehouses that process orders, to self-driving trucks and drones to deliver them, JD's research and development team is working on ways to eliminate costly workers.

What would be better is if we implemented some ideas from Ontario. A hell of a lot better than unemployment benefits or welfare, don't you think?

Second Career Ontario Government Funding

Give a man a fish and he eats for a day, teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.

BTW, I am a liberal who is very much against simply giving people money. But help people with retraining for a different career? I'm all over that. That's what we should be doing, and we're not. We just throw money at people and say good luck. That clearly doesn't work. That needs to change. Good ideas are good ideas, no matter where they come from.

This particular idea is the best I've seen so far. Welfare and unemployment are traps.
Thanks from Sabcat

I agree but we could do a lot by just reexamining our education system. People are "graduating" k-12 w/ little to no real world skills not even basic understanding of economics or finance. Then they are tossed to the wolves expected to go into a lifetime of debt to gain real world skills and come out of there even worse off than before.

Why we need to end most immigration. More and more jobs are being done by robotics. Importing an ignorant class of people every year is foolishness of the first magnitude.

I honestly do not understand the leftists infatuation w/ importing people. IMO it just shows how brainwashed they are.
