Jobs Lost Due to Technology - A WA Membership Can Help
I was watching a video interview of 2020 Republican candidate for president Bill Weld about how we all must get ready for the coming jobs lost due to technology. It is expected that within the next 20 years about 25% of the job market will vanish because of technology.
DRONES & AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES
Technological advances are fast moving forward. As the years go by the faster things once unheard of are becoming a reality. It is 2019. Can you think back 12 years ago and remember what life was like? One thing is for certain, you did not have an Apple or Droid smartphone.
The very first iPhone didn't hit the retail market until 2007 and now almost everyone in the world has some kind of smartphone. Did you know that these devices are not really a phone with added options? In fact they are a personal computer with the ability to make phone calls.
We already have drones flying in our skies from the personal types to military and law enforcement. We have airliners that can takeoff, fly and land by themselves. And Google along with several other companies have autonomous vehicles operating in our streets.
Amazon is developing small package delivery using drones and have also started testing an autonomous delivery robotic van. In the picture above is the DRU (Dominos Robotic Unit) an autonomous pizza delivery robot designed and road tested in New Zealand. See video below.
With technology surging ahead, many jobs that require driving will soon be replaced by driver-less vehicles. Uber and Lyft have been testing autonomous cars in specifiic areas for at least a year now, Lyft just reached 50,000 driverless rides in Las Vegas since 2018.
BILL WELD "PEOPLE NEED NEW TRAINING"
Even though we are not yet at the state of these jobs being totally gone because of technology, the time is coming and it is coming fast. Like Bill Weld said in his interview with Bloomberg Market, Americans need to educate themselves in other jobs now.
People need new training and cannot wait for the inevitable to happen, then wonder what are they going to do to earn income. If they wait too long they will find themselves on Government Assistance. That is not a good option for both government or those people.
Bill says that we need to invest in education that will train people for new jobs and new ways of earning an income in a world that is becoming more technological. People need to get started on that right now and stop focusing on issues that are not productive for our future.
I agree with him because technology is not going to stop advancing and in many cases it is advancing quicker than people feel like adapting. I still know people that do not like using a computer or smartphone (same thing) or even email. By choice they are being left behind.
This reminds me of many people in manufacturing jobs and those in the auto industry working on the assembly lines. For generations those jobs were secured but now many of those jobs are performed by automated robotics. These companies can now operate with less workers.
HOW WA CAN HELP FUTURE GENERATIONS
The talk in Washington is bringing back manufacturing jobs, but bringing back companies that moved to other countries does not mean going back to the days of lots of human workers. The auto industry is definitely not going to replace their cost-efficient robots for humans.
Those days are gone for good and there will be other jobs once thought of as secured, like driving, will soon be gone for good too. You may not like it but that is the trend of the present and the future. The time is now to get educated in another way to earn an income.
